YAY – our first Lego frame job! In addition to the very cool frame design our Natick store put together for it, this award comes with a terrific story.Dotty Corbiere happens to be the aunt of our Natick store manager, as well as a math instructor at the Meadowbrook School in Weston, Massachusetts. Dotty decided to enter last year’s LEGO Smart Creativity Contest. She involved faculty and students in a musical approach to the competition by forming their own ragtime band. The school made a “green city” from Legos and put together this video showing how they use Legos in educational ways. Just look at what they did – this isn’t your typical Lego project! They utilized robotic parts with computer programmed controls and it looks like there was even a dash of civil engineering included.
Their hard work paid off and Lego awarded them the 2011 Grand Prize! The Massachusetts State Senate recognized their creative and enthusiastic effort with the citation that we were proud to frame. Congrats to Dotty and Meadowbrook School – the video is adorable!
