Last week I was lucky enough to be invited to share my BrickStix journey with about 500 students at Horace Mann Elementary School. For about a week they had been told a special speaker was coming to their school. There were posters up and down the halls with famous inventors on them, and one in shadow. I didn’t know about any of this before my arrival, but, I did think it was pretty cool to be included with such great minds…to be a “real live one!” My purpose was to inspire them to be creative, and to let them know kids can do incredible things. All kids!

I walked in to the filled auditorium with my BrickStix in hand, and the teacher and I did a little skit to get the kids excited. She pretended to not know who I was, and I let her know I was there to speak to the kids. They all laughed. Anyway, I went on to share my story. I had a prepared PowerPoint with images of me as a kid building with LEGO and pictures involving my BrickStix adventure. I showed them bits of video from a couple tv spots and I talked about inventing.

As I stood there, talking, I was struck by their age. I was once that small. Some of them were the age I was when I dreamt up BrickStix. I was no different from any of them, and they were no different from me. I’m no expert, but it was fun pretending to be. We all have passions and ideas. We are all creative in our own way. And we all come up with ideas, all of the time. We just don’t always act on them. I let them know that I think inventing is just solving a problem. Maybe it’s making something that already exists work better, or maybe it is coming up with something completely new. Regardless, we all have it in us. They had lots of questions, and were eager to learn as much as they could.

I hope I inspired them to be creative thinkers and I hope they all enjoy getting ready to present at their Inventors’ Fair. I know they inspired me.

Feeling inspired,

Brick Boy

Summer has officially started. Yesterday was my first day home in 12 days. School got out and I went straight to Duluth for a week long hockey goalie camp. Then we drove back for 7 hours, got home, slept for 4 and drove 2 more hours to Brickworld in Chicago. BrickStix had a great show, we met awesome people and saw incredible builds. I even helped set one up and added my own build to it! Brickworld is probably one of my favorite things to do. If you love LEGO®, you really should check it out. We got home Sunday and I went straight to an Architecture Camp at Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin. I went with a great friend and we had an awesome time at camp and just hanging out. Now I am home, with the rest of the summer ahead of me. More camps, more friends, more fun.

BrickWorld3I went to Brickworld Chicago for the first time last week. My whole family went to show the LEGO fans our BrickStix Clings and new Mod Stix. There were so many people and so many LEGO bricks everywhere you looked. It was amazing. Tons of brilliant builds all in one place! I asked a lot of questions and came home full of ideas. I learned how to make walls curve and different ways to use your bricks. I brought home lots of cool minifigs, BrickArms and other accessories. One of my favorite things I bought at Brickworld was the LEGO Architecture set Farnsworth House. Did I mention I met Adam Reed Tucker the architect behind LEGO Architecture! How cool is that! He was really nice and even signed the boxes they came in (my sisters each got one too). We built our sets as soon as we got home. They are awesome.

Thanks to all of the builders for all of their tips and advice. I am already working on a MOC for next year. If you love LEGO, you should check out Brickworld next year.
