LEGO Master Builder Academy is an in-home and online experience in which real LEGO Master Builders share the tips and techniques of basic through advanced building, creativity and design with kids (ages 8 or older) who want to become better builders.
LEGO MBA has four levels of building skills to give kids the best possible building experience. Each level contains 3 kits, which include a building set, a Designer Handbook with multiple building instructions and tips from the actual designers of the models, and inspiration for new building ideas. As kids move from one level to another, a color-coded minifigure with buildable accessories acts as a symbol of their mastery of new building techniques.
Each kit unlocks new content in the exclusive LEGO MBA website, a child-safe place for kids to exchange ideas, track their progress through each level of the program, upload pictures of their own LEGO creations, learn from their fellow MBA members, and earn badges for achievements. Online challenges and interactive quizzes help members unlock extra LEGO MBA content, secret building tips and Master Builder videos!
