The LEGO Group is participating in World Maker Faire to inspire children – as well as their parents and other community members – to make, tinker and play.
Maker Faire celebrates innovation and experimentation across the spectrum of science, engineering, art, performance and craft. LEGO play encourages hands-on tinkering and is among a child’s first introductions to making.
