Scott Higley, director of strategic communications for the Georgia Department of Transportation, said the goal is to teach families about the “building process in a way that’s fun and easy to understand.”
“The entire community is very interested in and focused on the I-85 bridge reconstruction,” Higley said in a statement.
Guests can also attend workshops that will challenge them to create mini-bridge models, test their work with weighted Lego cars and rebuild designs as necessary. At the end, Legoland’s master model builder Rod Farris aka “Professor Rod” will discuss which building techniques were most successful.
The daily "Bridge & Test" classes start are held from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. They last around 30 minutes and are free with the price of admission.
This story has been updated to include new details on how many Lego bricks will be used to build the model.
