Maker Camp: Lego fun!

Maker Camp: Lego fun!

Today on Maker Camp we dive into the wide world of Lego and all the things you can make with everyone’s favorite construction toy. But Lego is more than a toy.

Build this Lego gaming controller.

We’ll geek out with five people who take Lego way more seriously than you do. We’ll meet three MIT researchers from the Lego Learning Lab, birthplace of Lego Mindstorms and Scratch; co-creator of LUGNET (a community of adult Lego fanatics — you can be one too!); and someone who has your dream job: building models for Lego in Denmark!


Today’s projects? Lego-related, of course. Our basic project is a Lego flash drive. For a more advanced project, we’ve got a Lego-made gaming controller stand.

Tune in right here on Google+ at 11am PDT, and post a project of your own on the Maker Camp community page on Google+.

    I suggest you include the time at multiple timezones. It’s just a pain having to do it mannually.

      It’s not that hard, once you join the event via G+ it will display in your timezone. :)

    What do Legos have to do with education? Actually, you’d be surpised…
