Who is eligible to be invited to join the SJSLT?
Junior builders, ages 8-14 (as of April 1, 2022) are eligible to be selected for our team. (Older builders, ages 15-17 are eligible to be offered membership to our adult Lego club, SJLUG).
Builders are selected from the Mini Master Builders classes hosted by our adult builders from the South Jersey Lego User Group (SJLUG). We evaluate builders from their participation & behavior during the Mini Master Builders classes. All participants must live within the greater Philadelphia area / South Jersey.
Not all students who express interest will be selected. Likewise, students who are invited are under no obligation to join. This select team is limited in size, is invite-only and builders will be selected based on their interest, creativity, skill-level, eagerness to learn, their ability to behave appropriately within an environment that involves focused building, open and accepting brainstorming and cooperative team work.
What's a Brick Badge?
In the Lego builder community, brick badges are earned by participating in Lego shows and events. Typically consisting of one or more 1x8 engraved bricks, they are built to show awards, events attended and more.
Club members will get a "South Jersey Select Build Team - 2023" brick to start their collection, as well as a name or nick-name engraved brick for their first badge.
Club participants will also have the ability to earn additional bricks for accomplishments and shows attended!
