Steel City LUG

Founded in August 2012, Steel City LUG has experienced rapid growth in Southwestern Pennsylvania in just two years. Starting off with a bang by displaying at LEGO KidsFest's unprecedented second straight year in Pittsburgh, SCLUG followed that up with a plethora of local displays and events in 2013, partnering with local libraries, Boy Scout packs, and art galleries to take the Three Rivers region by storm. Using the power of ABS combined with their diverse blend of building styles and ingenuity, SCLUG built the Great Wall of China, then an ant-farm style display in conjunction with a local library's summer reading theme titled "DIG Into Reading" featuring vignettes and scenes from various beloved books, and several town/train and space layouts - including some with winter and holiday themes featuring Santa's headquarters, a candy factory, and the elfin toy factory. Intermingled with the displays came numerous interactive events where kids of all ages could compete to build the tallest tower, strongest bridge, or fastest race car, all while encouraging creativity and engagement for kids and parents alike. Highlights included an interactive mosaic build at a local festival where kids could follow a pattern to help build an image of a local monument, and the International Children's Festival, hosted in the Oakland neighborhood near the campuses of Pitt and Carnegie Mellon Universities in 2013, and downtown in the Cultural District in Spring 2014. Steel City LUG kicked off 2014 with a display at a local theater to promote The LEGO Movie, and kept up momentum with a return to the Cranberry Library for the 2014 summer reading theme of Fizz, Boom, Read! featuring a phantasmagorical world full of rainbow colored castles and whimsy. Steel City LUG also took their displays on the road in 2014, to Philly Brick Fest, Brick Fair VA, and Brick Fest Live events in Baltimore and Cincinnati. To close out the year, SCLUG are displaying at the Pennsylvania Trolley Museum to support the Santa Trolley event, and will look to build bigger and better things in 2015! The approximate size of this LUG is 104 members. The ambassador's name is Matt Redfield.
