Last week our NH LEGO League Master Builders took on the challenge of LEGO micro building. Micro building is the concept of taking a large structure or design and creating a scale model of it with as much detail as possible. It can take years to master the skill; our kids only had a couple of hours.
From Star Wars ships to trains, we saw a little of everything. The kids really worked hard to develop some great ideas and embrace the challenge. In the end it was decided by most that bigger is better so this week I think we will see larger than life foods as we take on the LEGO brick restaurant challenge.
We are off to a great start for the spring session of the NH LEGO League Master Builders program. This session we will be hosting several events including our 4th annual Bricktona500.
Check out more great photos from our free build meeting and check back as we begin our micro building challenge this week.

What’s new in 2012-2013?
Recently the NH LEGO League held its graduation ceremony to recognize its 2013 winter session Master Builders. Eighteen students from across the state travelled to Goffstown for eight weeks to participate in building challenges from “Structures and Buildings” to “Cartoon Characters”. “These kids work really hard on these challenges. They are proud of what they build, and really enjoy seeing what the other kids in the group build each week.” states Dan Hughes Founder of the NH LEGO League.
Included in the Master Builders graduation were Anthony Chalbeck and Eric Robidoux who both earned 8th degree Master Builder status. To become a NH LEGO League Master Builder, students in the program must complete a series of challenges in an eight week period; they must also show improvement over previous sessions, be fun, and positive towards other members. “These are two outstanding young men and without a doubt deserve to our highest honor ever awarded.” Commented Hughes.

On Sunday December 9th, the NH LEGO League Master Builders gathered for their Fall 2012 graduation ceremony.
As part of the event they were given a 60 minute build challenge; create a design that showed thier appreciation to their parents and family. During the season, the Master Builders program requires them to complete a series of challenges based on several different themes. For graduation we have always believed it is important to thank our parents and family members who make this all possible.
Then as a group we recognized the success of all the Master Builders throughout the year. Each was then awarded with their
