The projected kits for the 2020-21 school year are as follows:




November 19, 2020 - Philanthropy Day

With this simple introductory kit, we want to show our supporters how much we appreciate everything they do to raise funds and awareness to our programs in the best interests of the students. This Hand and Heart kit is specifically designed with the logo of the Fremont Area Community Foundation, and it is our goal to teach every student how valuable and satisfying it can be to give to your community.

This kit was designed by Todd Merrifield, specifically for this program.


November - American Indian / Alaska Native Heritage Month

What better way to inspire the creative minds of our students than to showcase the creative work of our American Indian heritage. The totem pole has been a long-recognized artform created by our indegenous tribes, and we thought that recreating the famous, Thunderbird, would be a fun challenge, and a beautiful build for the students.

December - Holiday Season

There are so many festive holiday symbols, but as we've never seen a large-scale LEGO build of a Christmas Tree, we thought this would be the perfect opportunity to introduce this fun design.

January 2021 - National Braille Literacy Month

Imagine having to read with your fingertips! This is something that blind people must learn if they want to continue enjoying the written word, and so the kit for this month is all about combining the functionality of LEGO parts with the fascinatingly tactile braille alphabet!

February 2021 - Black History Month

What better way to celebrate the civil rights movement and the ground-breaking actions of Rosa Parks than to build and display the seat on the bus which she refused to give up. With a removeable roof, this kit is a great reminder of the lengths that we have come (and the continued efforts we need to support) to encourage and promote racial equality in our country!

March 14 - Pi Day

Jason Allemann is the LEGO Master Builder that I chose to showcase this year -- his designs and builds are intricate and amazing, while still being "buildable" by the novice LEGO enthusiast. For Pi Day, March 14, we celebrate a little bit of math with our After School Builders by building a working combination lock safe. Can you guess what the combination will be?
