When Bear Scout parent Lou Nash crossed the Tappan Zee Bridge with his family last weekend, he said, they had a greater appreciation of the immense project.

A few days earlier the Educational Outreach Team brought the project to Tuckahoe Cub Scout Pack 7.

“He was an amazing narrator, and his passion for the bridge was evident,” Nash said of Program Administrator Andy O’Rourke. “About 40 1st through 5th graders sat spellbound and asked lots of questions” and were as engaged as their parents.

Legopalooza at Lyndhurst last spring included a hands-on fun project: build the new bridge from LEGO® bricks/NNYB

After visiting Lyndhurst and seeing Educational Outreach Administrator Andy O’Rourke’s presentation, Nash picked up information that included presentations to other scout troops and knew Pack 7 would enjoy it, too.

“We all had a blast,” he said. “Being a scout and from the area made it all the more special.”

A number of parents told Nash it was the best pack meeting they’ve had, and the fun won’t stop here. “We’d love to do more like the LEGO® build,” he said.

I’d like to know what you think.
