Welcome to the Brick Fest LEGO Blog!

By: Chad Collins, Founder of Learn With Bricks LLC

Here at Learn With Bricks HQ (the company behind our live events, YouTube channels, etc) our goal is to inspire as many people as possible and unlock their hidden potential by educating and entertaining with LEGO bricks. For a peak into my philosophy on this topic I have included links to a couple of articles that articulate these beliefs.

The LEGO Building Experience

Why Brick Fest Live

On a weekly (more of less) basis, we will bring you new information on the following topics:

Inside access to LEGO events near you and around the world

While we produce our own LEGO-themed events, there are dozens, if not hundreds of other events that take place all year long, all over the world. Some of these events are longstanding staples in the Adult Fan of LEGO (AFOL) community such as BrickFair, BrickWorld, and BrickCon (to name a few), while others like our own Philly Brick Fest, and Utah’s BrickSlopes are newcomers to the 2014 calendar. Events like LEGO KidsFest, and Brick Fest Live are geared towards kids, others favor the AFOL community. Each of these events inspire the young and keep the wisest minds fresh. We will be covering a number of these events throughout the year to bring you pictures, video, and more. We will keep you up to date on which events we will be attending and how you can attend them too. Be sure to say hi if you see us wondering about.

The latest applications of LEGO in education

LEGO is used in schools and education programs every day to promote Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics (STEM). We will share the latest stories and articles of interest to you on this topic, and will seek interviews with influential members of the LEGO education and robotics community like First LEGO League

New products or services perfect for LEGO lovers

It seems as if every month, there is a new LEGO related product or service (off-line or online) that hits the market. A number of these items compliment your existing LEGO collection and are only available from 3rd party companies instead of being offered directly from LEGO. As new products and services hit the market we will be sure to let you know!

Inspiring ideas of things you can build with your LEGO collection at home

It is likely that you probably own a lot of LEGO. We know because we do too! You will find that we are never short of creative ideas of things you can build with the LEGO you already own. We’ll be sharing these ideas and of course much, much more!

I hope you are as excited as we are.
