The museum is excited to announce a temporary community exhibit featuring The Fuzzy Pink Bunnies of Doom that opens in May. The Bunnies of Doom are a group of six talented girls from the northwest suburbs that make up a Lego robotics team. The group competes in the Junior First Lego League, a youth program to foster interest in science and innovation. At recent events, the Bunnies of Doom took home awards for Technical Design at the Rockford regional Senior Solutions competition and team spirit at the Senior Solutions state tournament. The museum exhibit will show off the team’s projects and introduce visitors to the dazzling world of Lego robotics. But wait, there’s more!
The museum will also be hosting a Lego robotics celebration on Saturday, May 4 from 9.30-12.00 showcasing robots and project demonstrations from the Bunnies and other local teams that participated in the Super Senior tournaments this year. If your team is interested, more info can be found in the flyer below or by contacting Debbie at DFandrei@bgparks.org. Registration and a $30 team fee (covers certificates and medals for each team member) is required for participation. If you’re just interested in seeing neato Lego robots, this event is free and does not require registration so stop in and check it out!
