This video introduces the LEGO® Millyard Project at the SEE Science Center, the largest permanent installation of LEGO® bricks at minifigure scale in the world.

The first featured closeup is Pine Island Park, which used electricity to power it’s rides. It includes a very special roller coaster built by LEGO® Master Builder, Jamie Berard, judge on the TV show LEGO Masters on Fox.

Did you know that Manchester, NH had electric street lights two weeks before the Edison’s Pearl Street Station began operations in New York?

If you have the supplies on hand, you may want to try to build your own electric generator using these instructions from the Exploratorium.
