IIT hosted its fifth annual LEGO City day in Crown Hall on Saturday, July 12th, 2014. The rain couldn’t hold back participants who had been looking forward to this event since last year! Just under a thousand guests attended. New to this year’s event were: interactive “LEGO® Mindstorms” robot demonstrations by IIT alumna Manju Muralidharan Priya (MAS ’14); a unique LEGO® programming activity for participants who wanted a hands-on, “unplugged,” coding challenge; and a bigger and better “Skyscrapers, Highrises & Landmarks” LEGO® display by IIT architecture student and talented LEGO hobbyist Rocco Buttliere. IIT alumni were invited to come early for breakfast, mingling, and early access to LEGOs. We already can’t wait for the IIT LEGO City 2015.
This event was coordinated by the IIT Boeing Scholars Academy (SASDI office), the IIT Alumni Association, the Mies van der Rohe Society, and the American Institute of Architecture Students (AIAS).
