“Since 2007, our motto has been ‘Share – Learn – Explore – Discover,’ which reflects our intent to create a fun and educational event where LEGO artists can meet and gain wisdom from each other,” said executive director and Master Builder Mark Larson. “Brickworld is all about having fun and being creative. With LEGO, the possibilities are endless, and, at Brickworld, we hope the inspirations are endless as well.” Larson is available for interviews.
The LEGO brick is widely recognized as one of the most educational toys in the world. Research suggests children learn best through play and LEGO bricks offer a wide range of benefits to children’s development and confidence. Using LEGO bricks exercises creativity skills, hand-eye coordination, and matrix reasoning. At Brickworld, participants of all ages can witness and learn an amazing variety of ways to use the brick for art and engineering applications.
