LEGO Gingerbread House

Posted by Melissa Orth on December 7th, 2016

Here’s a holiday vacation challenge: create a LEGO gingerbread house, pretend it is filled with expensive presents, and then use LittleBits and other circuitry to burglar-proof it.

You get to play with LEGO and robot parts and motors for an hour and it’s all free (but you don’t get to keep anything and the gingerbread part isn’t edible). This event takes place Thursday December 29, 2 – 3 pm.

If you are in grades 6 – 12, get more info and sign up for this maker challenge by calling 725-5242 x225.

Check out a similar but much smaller scale project we made for October in this video clip:
