"Nikola Tesla worked to change the world with his inventions, and in return the world saved his Wardenclyffe Lab in a crowdfund made up of 33,000 donors from 108 countries and all 50 US states. As a thank you, we are accelerating virtual programs and offering many of them free to all from our website. Tesla's LEGO Challenge is part of our rollout of virtual programs to help amuse and motivate youth and adults who are in need of meaningful stimulation. It's a project the whole family can enjoy and bond over."
