4-H Day at LEGOLAND is September 10th

 4-H Day at LEGOLAND is September 10th

 

The 4th Annual 4-H Day at LEGOLAND on Saturday, September 10th. This event is an opportunity for 4-H members and their families to explore the LEGOLAND theme park at a deep discount, while raising funds for 4-H clubs, camps, and other educational programs.  LEGOLAND is a great way to have fun with the entire family and learn about science, engineering, and technology.  The Florida Department of Ag’s greenhouse is a must-see attraction.  You can learn all about Florida agriculture and how we are feeding the nation and world.  Just don’t eat the produce- it’s all made from LEGOs!  You can also sign up for a robotics class while you are there to learn how engineers design, build, program, and test robots. The Florida Department of Agriculture Greenhouse is a must-see attraction at LEGOLAND.
