LEGO artist Robin Sather puts the kids to work at Science World

LEGO Certified Professional Robin Sather had a lot of help from the kids who showed up at Science World in Vancouver, B.C. Canada for an exciting new LEGO exhibition that opened this morning. For the next three days (Friday Jan 30 to Sunday Feb 1) from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., groups of kids are volunteering to help build a giant space shuttle that will become a focal point of the latest exhibition at Science World: Wheels, Wings and Waves—a LEGO World of Transportation that runs to May 4, 2009.

Robin and his team at Brickville Designworks have been using LEGO bricks and products to produce events, displays, exhibits, and custom creations since 2004. Today at Science World, it was the first time Robin has ever worked with such a big team of volunteer builders. The hard-working kids (and parents and grandparents) have an important role to play this weekend.

“Without them, we would never get it finished by the end of the weekend,” Robin says, with a laugh. He says kids can enjoy coming back and taking pride in seeing the work they helped put together.

Hi, Lego is one of the world's best toys. Look what a professional can do with a few blocks. The science fair must have been great fun...

Hi all,

This is Robin (the guy in the picture above!) checking in, and saying thanks to Susan for stopping by and checking out the exhibit. We had many thousands of kids and adults in on the weekend, and the giant space shuttle was finished by Monday at 11am. It's 3 metres tall!
