‘Think Outside the Brick’ STEM Contest Winners
This year’s Think Outside the Brick STEM Contest was quite a success! We received many creative LEGO inventions from students in kindergarten through 12th grade displaying their scientific abilities. We invite you to view our online collection of participants and see the fantastic submissions we received this year.
If you submitted an invention for your student, you should have received a participant certificate. If you missed it, you can download your certificate of participation, print it, personalize it by filling in your student’s name, and display it in your home to encourage their interest in STEM.
