Our Thursday afternoons, LEGO Club enjoyed a lot of free building time in February, inspired by Valentine's Day and our own imaginations.

the cabinet bed invented in 1885 by Sarah Goode, the first African-American woman to receive a patent
the traffic light and gas mask, invented by Garrett Morgan in the early 20th century
Join us to build every Thursday afternoon from 4-6 p.m. for more fun!
