LEGOLAND Discovery Centres in the US have started to offer a solution for schools that have been missing out on their educational trips, by bringing the LEGO experience to them.
Some schools in North America haven’t been able to treat their students to a school trip for quite some time, no doubt due, at least in some part, to the coronavirus pandemic forcing most businesses and museums to close or limit visitors.
It seems that the LEGOLAND Discovery Centres across the country decided to do something about that, having opened up a new, virtual option for schools in partnership with LEGO Education.
The Virtual Field Trip package offers to bring the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre to the classroom, rather than having the classroom come to the location, avoiding any unnecessary contact but still providing an entertaining and educational experience.
The above image was taken from the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Michigan’s website but other locations are offering similar packages for varying prices. This particular package includes a lesson, Q&A with a Master Model Builder and a LEGO build for each student.
Unfortunately, it’s only open to schools, so most of you probably won’t be able to book your own private one on one with a Master Model Builder anytime soon. But it’s still a nice idea from the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre team and one that might bring a few smiles to kid’s faces at a difficult time. One of the UK locations had a similar idea towards the beginning of the pandemic too.
