Brick Scientists

Take three eight-stud Lego bricks and they can be combined in 1060 ways. Take these same bricks and a couple more, add the enthusiasm of the Tara Tots and Boys and the combinations become nearly infinite. This is what Masha and Max are planning to achieve by putting in place a special program for the Tara kids, using Lego bricks to foster their creativity and interest in culture and science.

This is not a first for Masha and Max. Masha has volunteered in multiple children centered projects and Max is the founder of BrickScientist School, a Netherlands-based workshop program teaching kids about science and engineering, using Lego bricks. While the main workshop will be held in 2013, Masha is already busy with discovery sessions, attempting to contain the limitless creativity of the young Tara minds.
