We hope to create a LEGO® users group for Santa Cruz County, especially after attending the Bricks by the Bay convention in 2010. BRIKS was created for LEGO® artists, engineers, enthusiasts, model builders, and robotic engineers to share their knowledge. All are welcome!
Members gather whenever possible to share their latest LEGO® creations, solve a tricky design problem, or read through the latest LEGO® magazine. Through lots of LEGO® construction and engineering, we've seen them develop problem-solving and critical thinking skills. Having already figured out how to use LEGO® bricks, we hope that these budding experts - with some coaching and mentoring - develop engineering skills and an eye for design, and even learn to apply concepts of physics and mathematics.
Socialization, creative expression, and an appreciation of how things work are some of our goals for BRIKS members, but most of all, we just want them to build and discover.
• Our one hour meetings are held at members’ homes, or with advance notice, in a public meeting room at the Watsonville Public Library.
• Members are encouraged to explore their own creativity.
