Hear Ye! Hear Ye! All ye big and small! Calling all junior builders to create a castle that will not fall!

Port Discovery and College Savings Plans of Maryland have partnered for a Summer Brick Building Battle! We’re asking kids ages 4 – 12 to build their best castle or medieval inspired creation completely out of LEGO bricks from home and submit it for a chance to win a $529 College Investment Plan account from CSPM, a gift certificate to Classic Plastic Bricks and a family membership to Port Discovery!

HOW IT WORKS: Take the summer to BUILD, BUILD, BUILD! Once your creation is complete, snap a picture and send it to legocontest@portdiscovery.org (or mail to Port Discovery at 35 Market Pl, Baltimore, MD 21202) by July 31st! The submissions will be split into 3 age categories:

  • Ages 10 - 12
  • Ages 7 - 9

VOTING: On August 1st, we will post all of the entries on our Facebook page for the first round of voting. Each entrant will accumulate votes through ‘Likes’ on their photo so be sure to SHARE, SHARE, SHARE. On August 31st, we will tally the votes and the top 3 entrants from each age category will be notified to bring their creations into Port Discovery. The grand prize winner will be selected in September by a panel of 3 judges.

LEGO® Castle Adventure!
February 14th - September 20th
Builders of all ages are invited to explore, build and play in our newest traveling exhibition – LEGO® Castle Adventure! In this exhibit kids and their families are transported to a LEGO® kingdom where they too can become master castle builders, using one of the greatest building materials of all time –   LEGO bricks.

Visitors will be immersed in castle-life through experiences and activities including:

  • Builders of all ages and skill levels can construct castles, learn about real-world castles and their building secrets, and plan their ideal castle’s defenses. The Builders Guild is divided into three age-appropriate build areas:
    • Apprentice Builders (toddlers) can build using soft foam LEGO bricks.
    • Journeyman Builders (ages 3-6) build with LEGO® Duplo® bricks.
    • Master Builders (ages 7 and up) can create designs with brick paper and then build using classic LEGO bricks.
  • Exploring the inside of the royal castle full of LEGO brick decorations, the king and queen’s thrones and secret passageways.
  • Virtually build a fortress wall on screen and test its strength with a LEGO catapult.
  • Using a colorful array of green bricks, children can plan and create and build their own topiaries.
  • Climb into the lookout tower and defend the castle walls.
  • LEGO Castle Adventure is locally sponsored by:
