Quotes

...take ownership of the competition, and really give their own input," said Søren Thomsen, Head of Educational Development, LEGO(R) Education. "I see it with so many teams -- the glow in their eyes is really just magical."
The centre, which is expected to attract around 250,000 visitors a year, will host a series of "playful displays and installations', primarily aimed at children, although they'll also appeal to big kids..."
He said Lego, which will soon have produced more minifigures than there are humans on the planet, is achieving just that, and the "positive reception of Lego worldwide shows that we are depicting them [girls] in a way that they find very aspirational and attractive"
