Last Sunday marked the grand opening of the new LEGOLAND Discovery Center at Crown Center. Along with the recently opened SEA LIFE Aquarium, LEGOLAND is one of the most anticipated new attractions in Kansas City. Step inside this wonderful world of colorful LEGO building bricks to experience the thrills and chills of 4D Cinema, learn LEGO building secrets from the Master Model Builder, see iconic Kansas City landmarks made completely out of LEGOS in MINILAND, and much more!
The Local Show .
What is your favorite PBS or KCPT program and why?
Actually, I have several favorites. Forced to choose, it is definitely The Local Show. I enjoy learning about what is happening in our own community, at the local level. We have a tendency to forget all the great people and developments in our own backyard.
What do you enjoy most about being involved with KCPT?
The opportunity to meet and work with great people I may not run into otherwise. We bond and are all driven by our common passion of helping position KCPT as the local channel of choice.
Why should people support KCPT?
Education, and therefore knowledge, is a wonderful antidote to poverty while promoting understanding. Where else can you get a world-class education for just pennies? Let’s not forget the first class art programs (“food for the soul”) coming to our family rooms thanks to KCPT.
This week on The Local Show, we share an interesting new Wayside Waifs program that uses dogs to combat bullying. As part of the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce’s Big 5 Ideas, Dr. David Livingston was the keynote speaker at a major gala dinner last week to celebrate the work of the Kansas City Life Sciences Insitute. Nick Haines sat down with Dr. Livingston to find out a bit more about translational research. We preview a new documentary, We Are Superman, about revitalizing the area around 31st and Troost. And we share a profile of Epic Arts Studio in KCK.
