EBSOLA Show 2016

School is still in session and KLUG is striving to be at the head of the class.  We spent a Friday at EBSOLA and fun was the subject of the day.  Don’t worry parents; we snuck in some learning too.  This was by far the most interactive show KLUG has done to date.

The heart of the show was Lego’s Mindstorms robots provided by KTEC’s First Lego League.  These young engineers and programmers were eager to share how they fabricate a robot to do a multitude of tasks all using Lego bricks.

Guest could race their friends on the KLUG pine-brick derby track.  With 4 lanes and a huge pile of bricks to choose from, the racing was fast and furious.   If you didn’t want to live in the fast lane, then the Lego Crawler 4x4 track was more your speed.  Here guests could test their skills driving a monster truck over logs, rocks, and cars.  There was also Chima Speeder races, pull-back car races, and Ninjago spinner battles.

The show wasn’t all play.  You could see Kenosha’s trollies making trips past popular city sites.  Star Wars was well represented with a multitude of official sets.  Not only could you see how Lego Star Wars has evolved over its 11 year run, but you could have your picture taken with Bobba Fett!  A special thanks to the 501st Legion for making an appearance.

All in all we had a blast.  The kids toured the show in shifts during school hours.  Later that day they returned with parents and loved ones to enjoy a Lego filled day.  We gave away tons of prizes and created tons of smiles.  More than 1200 people came out to see us.  Now that’s what I call a fun day at school.
