Aidan was 1 of about 10 kids chosen to go to the Legoland Discovery Center In Chicago to participate in a photo shoot. The photo shoot was for their website, brochures and possibly a commercial. This was such a good opportunity for him since he would like to be a Lego Master Builder and an Engineer.
For their first challenge, the kids were given a box of legos and were told they only had 30 minutes to build 1 of the 3 challenges inside the box. They could build two of the stationary objects, or a windmill with moving parts. Aidan and his partner Evan was the only one to choose the moving parts challenge. They had the hardest challenge and they finished before all the other kids. Aidan’s partner Evan seemed to be just as smart about the mechanics of Legos as him.
There next challenge was to build a bridge that would support varies weights:
The 3rd challenge was to go to the Lego Academy Workshop and build a digital comic using the Legos and the computer together.
Of course after the photo shoot, the kids wanted to play so we spent the afternoon at Legoland exploring. Here are some of the photos:
I hope he remembers this trip when he gets older. This was a wonderful opportunity for him to live out one of his dreams. We are so proud of you Aidan.
