Rockbridge Fair & Expo LEGO competition results!

This past weekend, we delivered all of the entries from our LEGO Build Day into the Fair Fantastics LEGO competition at the Rockbridge Fair and Expo.

Our builders ROCKED it! We brought back 11 ribbons and one BEST IN SHOW prize! Congrats to the creator of “National Park!”

Many thanks and congratulations to our builders — be sure to email us to find a time to pick up your prize, and plan on a summer 2019 LEGO Build Day with the Fulcher Lab!

Welcome back to school, RCPS!

We hope everyone has a great first day of the 2018-2019 school year at Rockbridge County Public Schools!

Our research assistants are still here, so if you’re looking for a fun after-school activity one day, email us to sign up for a research session! We have studies for children ages 3 to 10, all of which involve toy play.

We hope it’s a great year! 

Successful LEGO build day!

Thanks so everyone who attended our LEGO build day on Saturday! We built awesome LEGO creations that we will enter into the Rockbridge Fair & Expo’s LEGO competition.

Swing by the Fair on September 7th or 8th to see the creations on display!

Summer Fun at Lexington Office on Youth!

This week, we visited Summer Fun at the Lexington Office on Youth for a lesson on LEGOs and spatial skills. We made our own LEGO and DUPLO creations, worked together as a team to build the tallest tower of Mega-Bloks, and made LEGO creations from instructions! It was a great morning at LOY!

LEGO build day next week! August 4, 3:00 – 4:30

Love building LEGOs? Think your creations are worth a prize?

We have just the day for you! The Fulcher lab is hosting a LEGO build day for children 8 and younger, where we’ll build creations and enter them into the Rockbridge Fair & Expo’s LEGO competition on your child’s behalf.

Drop off is at 3:00 at the Great Hall of the W&L Science Center, where parents will fill out fair entry forms. Pick up is at 4:30 in the same location. Don’t worry about any of the other fair details — we’ll take care of getting it to the fair, entering the creation, and bringing it back!

Email us ( ) to sign up for next Saturday’s event!

Spending the last few weeks of the summer in Lexington?

So are we! If you have children ages 3-10, consider spending an morning or an afternoon with us. We have lots of fun research projects going on, and would love for families to come in during their last few weeks of the summer. All participants receive a prize for their help!

Email to schedule a visit!


It may be early, but we’re already excited for the trick-or-treat on Main Street this Halloween! Check us out last year — we had a blast!
