Inspire children’s creativity with LEGO and animation
When technology can solve a wide range of problems, imagination becomes the most valuable asset of humankind. Therefore, emphasis has been placed on nurturing creativity in children, instead of moulding children into “good kids” who just follow instructions. To arouse curiosity and encourage the new generation to solve problems in a creative way, Chevalier Group organised "Chill FUN Summer", inviting children from Tin Shui Wai to visit LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre Hong Kong and watch "Minions: The Rise of Gru".
LEGO® is considered as great toy that foster creativity because there are enormous possible combinations. Players can basically make anything and LEGO® lovers always surprise the world with incredible designs. Participants of "Chill FUN Summer" were amazed by the miniature replica of Hong Kong buildings and landmarks built from LEGO® bricks. They also enjoyed building their own work at the Build & Test zone, where they can race their vehicles on the speed test track, or examine the earthquake resistance of their LEGO® buildings. The 4D Studio and exciting rides attracted a lot of attention too!
More than 30 children were divided into groups and looked after by volunteers from Chevalier Group. The volunteers did not only accompany the children and take photos for them, but also encouraged them to be creative during the trip. After the three-hour tour, the group went to the cinema for "Minions: The Rise of Gru", hoping to inspire children's imagination through the humor of the cartoon and the comical pranks of the Minions.
Since the outbreak of COVID-19, corporate volunteering activities have been significantly reduced. The Association is grateful for the support of the Chevalier Group when the epidemic stabilised, so that we can organise an outing and broaden the horizons of our service users.
