This program was developed to encourage students to discover the connections between science, invention, and technology using the LEGO® Millyard Project and the student's experience. It also introduces students to aspects of science not represented in our other exhibits and programs, such as social sciences, economics, environmental science, applied sciences and more.

The program is divided between classroom activity and exploration around the LEGO® Millyard Project.
Each student is supplied a LEGO® kit to use during the program. Each individual builds an item on their own, but is encouraged to work with other students who are also working with identical kits. The item they build can also be found represented in the exhibit.
Once students are finished building, they are encouraged to discover more about what they built. New this year, students will use tablets for digital building instructions and scavenger hunt activity. This new technology is thanks to a grant from the Norwin S. and Elizabeth N. Bean Foundation. At the end of the program, students participate in a guided discussion on the importance of what each group built.
