Building Greater Exeter seek Lego Competition Funding
LEGO COMPETITION – Inspiring the future workforce
The Royal Albert Memorial Museum (RAMM) in Exeter is holding ‘Brick by Brick: A Lego brick history of Exeter’ exhibition next summer, which will feature buildings in Exeter through history, made out of Lego. Building Greater Exeter are teaming up with RAMM to run a competition to ‘Design and build a model of a building for Exeter’s future’ in Lego.
The competition will launch in January 2022 and is open to all the primary schools in Exeter, Teignbridge and East Devon, with a particular focus on years 4-6 (age 7-12). There are 126 primaryschools across Greater Exeter, with a total of 28,729 pupils (average 224 per school). Not only will the competition engage the pupils, but in addition the teachers and families of the students at each school. The competition is open to all students and will therefore include pupils from different genders, backgrounds and those with disabilities. The competition will be promoted directly to the head teacher at every school and via the communication channels at Exeter, Teignbridge, East Devon and Devon councils.
Building Greater Exeter have allocated budget for 15 schools to participate and the aim is to attract additional funding to ensure at least 30 schools can participate. We are therefore looking for sponsorship to maximize impact and to help inspire the future workforce.
Should you wish to support this initiative, your logo and company bio will be included in all the communications surrounding the event such as social media, website promotion, the promotional pack, video and school literature, with prominence given to the larger sponsors.
To allow enough time to order all the Lego sets for a January 2022 launch the deadline to offer support is Thursday 16 December 2021
