Today we welcomed students from the Thomas O'Brien Academy of Science and Technology (TOAST). They embarked on an exciting space mission in miSci's Challenger Learning Center. Well done, students!

Whether flying to the Moon, intercepting a comet, visiting Mars, or studying the Earth from the International Space Station, each participant plays a unique role in the mission as the team completes assignments, manipulates hands-on labs, and copes with simulated emergencies. Teamwork is crucial – if one member fails to complete a job, the entire mission is at risk. This differentiated approach allows for a truly personalized learning experience where students apply critical, scientific knowledge to real-world scenarios.

Join us this Saturday, December 14th from 11 AM - 4 PM for LEGO Day and learn from a master! Ian Coffey, LEGO Master Builder, will be offering two building classes for participants in miSci's LEGO Building Zone.

Ian has been sharing his passion for building with LEGO bricks for years. In January 2014, he won a build-off competition and was named one of seven Master Model Builders in North America. He worked for LEGOLAND Discovery Center in Boston, Massachusetts, for two years, where he acquired skills that enhanced his building techniques. The desire to reach a broader audience paired with his desire to share his passion with other enthusiasts led to the founding of Bricks by Ian in 2016.

LEGO Day is this Saturday, 12/14

We've got a bunch of fun things scheduled for this event, but we're most excited to welcome back LEGO Master Builder Ian Coffey. Ian won a LEGO build off competition and was named one of seven Master Model Builders in North America. He then worked for LEGOLAND Discovery Center in Boston, MA, and is currently the owner of BricksbyIan.

Ian will be doing two hands-on classes and hanging out between those classes in the LEGO Building Zone, participating in a group build and answering all your LEGO building questions.
