GREAT LAKES – Calling all ship builders! The National Museum of the American Sailor will be hosting its first LEGO Brick By Brick event from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Aug. 3.
Create your own LEGO design and enter to win a LEGO Store gift card. Great Lakes Brick by Brick offers two competitions for children ages 4 to 12. Children can register to enter the Home Build Competition and bring in their designs on the day of the event or come to the event and use NMAS LEGOs to enter the On Site Competition.
This free program invites LEGO builders to share their creations with fellow enthusiasts on one exciting day – and compete for prizes.
Several LEGO-related activities will accompany the event, so be sure to bring your creativity to the National Museum of the American Sailor.
Educators will be on hand to share the science behind building with LEGOs.
The museum’s mission is to collect, preserve and interpret the history of the U.S. Navy’s enlisted sailor for the benefit of the U.S. Navy and the people of the United States. The museum is located at 2531 Sheridan Road and is adjacent to Gate 1 at Naval Station Great Lakes. Call 847-688-3154 or email NMAS.FCT@Navy.mil for information.
