For the sixth year in a row the Denver Public Library system has put on their annual Lego building contest on display, featuring works from kids and families from all over the city.
As a longtime Lego maniac, I thought it would be fun to take a well-lit look at this year’s entries.
The contest, says Denver Public Library spokesperson Chris Henning, helps “children and teens think through engineering concepts” and stimulate their imaginations, all in a setting where they can work together with their families and friends. This fits into their mission statement, which includes mandates to “provide enjoyment” and “strengthen our community.”
If nothing else, it’s bringing an old-time blockhead back to the glory days of building spaceships that never ceased to thrill.
