The LEGO® Engineers visited Rehkemper Invention and Design, a company that designs, develops and invents new electronic toys.  Jeff Rehkemper gave us a presentation about the processes involved in inventing new toys.  He showed us some of the toys that his company designed for famous toy manufacturers.  We toured the workshops where the engineers explained to us their different areas of expertise.  In the machine shop, we saw old fashioned milling machines and lathes as well as modern ones with Computer Numerical Controls that make milling, cutting and shaping materials like plastic, wood and metal more precise.  We left this “Engineers’ Heaven” more excited than ever about our own LEGO creations!
