LEGO Dream Homes – Building for the FutureAdd to My Luxx Living
Starting them early: Association sponsors children’s LEGO® home-building competition
Cape Cod children ages 5 to 12 were given 600 LEGO blocks and an hour to build their dream homes in the 1st Annual Children’s LEGO Home-Building Competition. It was sponsored by the Home Builders & Remodelers Association of Cape Cod, the Cape Cod Children’s Museum and Cape Cod Community College.
The program aimed to integrate science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) with home building, and involve children in the building process in a unique and fun setting.
Guest building commissioner and judge, Justin Post of Chatham, had each of the young contractors complete a building permit, and all received a certificate of occupancy for their finished homes.
Other judges were Mark Scala, Bank of Cape Cod; Brian LaValley, Brown Linquist Feniccio & Raber Architects; April Ducott, Cape Asociates; and James Bird, Windjammer Homebuilding & Remodeling.
The children’s homes were judged on neatness, creativity, design, attributes and color. There were two judging divisions: age 5-8, and age 9-12.
A hard-hat comedy show, with comic performer Brent McCoy, rounded out the afternoon program at the college’s Tilden Arts Center.
Thanks to our members and friends who through their sponsorships and support made the new and exciting program possible.
