On Thursday 12th July 2012, Kingsbury High School students from all years took part in a massive LEGO® building project in which they built an Olympic venue from thousands of LEGO® bricks. (kindly provided by LEGO® Education UK).
They constructed the different components of the venue including the stadium, competitors’ village and transport system. They even included an Olympic sized swimming pool. During the building of the competitors’ village the students constructed athlete accommodation including a bed, shower and TV.
The attention to detail in the completed venue shows just how much pride the students took in the project.
The project was organised by the schools Head of Technology: Mr Carver who is also a LEGO® Education UK Academy Certified Trainer. He said “the day was absolutely fantastic as the students used their own creativity to design and build their own interpretation of the London 2012 Olympic venue and village. The school are very grateful to LEGO® Education UK for helping out at such short notice.”
