Brickworld® is excited to once again be bringing a premiere LEGO® display and exposition to the Renaissance Convention Center in Schaumburg, Illinois. The event will fill all 100,000 square feet with displays, interactive activities and vendors. When asked how he would describe Brickworld events to someone that hasn’t attended, Event Organizer, Bryan Bonahoom, said “The displays at the event are awe inspiring. The detailed ideas and creativity of the artists and engineers always amaze.” Bryan also added “We are very excited to be celebrating the 50th anniversary of the introduction of LEGO trains at the show this year with a special commemorative display featuring all the variations on LEGO train motors and tracks.”
The creations you will see at the event range from medieval castles to futuristic space stations. They include movie scenes, replicas of real world buildings, and recreations of famous paintings. Pretty much anything you can imagine is probably at Brickworld in some form. Plus, no Brickworld event would be complete without an incarnation of the Great Ball Contraption Rube Goldberg machine and trains.
The LEGO brick is widely recognized as one of the most educational toys in the world. At Brickworld, kids of all ages can witness an incredible variety of ways to use the brick for art and engineering applications. Using the LEGO brick exercises creativity, engineering skills and hand-eye coordination.
