Graduate Students Visit LEGOLAND Discovery Center
Over 80 graduate students attended the August Graduate School Social at LEGOLAND DISCOVERY Center San Antonio.
“It was really fun to play with legos and trying to build something. As a senior graduate student, it was a nice break from my tight schedule,” said Meena Kusi, a student in the Integrated Biomedical Sciences Ph.D. program. “I had a long day, but the evening refreshed everything. I got to know new incoming students too. They were very excited about the school and they were happy that our school organizes such social fun events continuously. It was a very nice experience at Legoland that we might not have been able to visit as most of us don’t have kids yet and someone told me you can not enter legoland if you don’t have kids. I guess we were kids that evening and got to relive fun-filled days.”
During the visit, students were able to ride on Kingdom Quest where they were able to compete with each other to try to save the princess who was captured.
They also were able to watch The LEGO Movie 4D, A New Adventure; Legends of Chima & Nexo Knights Book of Creativity in the LEGOLAND Discovery Center’s 4D cinema.
The students were also able to explore MINILAND, which features interactive models of San Antonio-area landmarks built with over 1.5 million bricks!
Students also participated in a building challenge in the creative workshop where winners won prizes for the most-voted creation.
Creations included a bacteriophage and SpongeBob SquarePants.
Finally, students put their race car designing talents to the test! They built their best race car and then lined them up.
“Big thanks to the Graduate School of Biomedical Science at UT Health San Antonio for coming out to see us last night,” said Erin Vauter, Marketing & Sales Executive at LEGOLAND Discovery Center and SEA LIFE San Antonio. “We enjoyed sharing our love of LEGO® with you and seeing all the amazing builds you guys did!”
“I had a lot of fun at the Legoland event sponsored by the graduate school. I loved that the event encouraged people to spend some family time with the graduate school community,” said Courtney Johnson, a student in the Molecular Biochemistry and Biophysics discipline (now renamed Biochemical Mechanisms of Medicine) of the Integrated Biomedical Sciences Ph.D. program. “The friendly competition encouraged everyone to get involved and embrace their inner child. The unique designs built in the creative workshop were a highlight for me.
