Brainstorming Lego Challenge
Students brainstorm and discuss how their ideas are representative of Career Architecture

First year AVCD students participated in a class brainstorming session to prepare for the Lego Challenge happening on Friday, October 30th from 1–4 in the Owings Mills Gym. The annual Lego Challenge is a team project where students create a Lego sculpture that represents the aspects of Stevenson's Career Architecture process, including Personal Direction, Discipline Expertise and Professional Know-How.

The class brainstormed in groups and pitched ideas for what to build to best represent not only Career Architecture, but also the Visual Communication Design major as a whole. Once they settled on a solid idea, they moved on to discuss ways to further enhance their presentation, including props, costumes and additional imagery. The class even took the time to organize roles and timing to be best prepared for the event.

Come out and see everything they came up with at the Lego Challenge on Friday!
