Your New Job: To Play With Legos
This is definitely one of my dream jobs. I love Legos and still build things out of them all the time! Cal Walsh a recent University of Texas graduate who has a degree in aerospace engineering. But even with an advanced degree like that, it has been hard to find work in his field. The good news is he finally found a job,he'll be using all that education to be the new Lego czar at the Legoland Discovery Center at a starting salary of $37,500. Cal gets to play with Legos all day and encourage kids to do so. During a weekend competition at the Grapevine Mills Mall, Walsh beat out nine other Lego-loving finalists who were given an hour to design something that defined them and their interests. Walsh used his engineering skills to build a spaceship, a unicycle and a running shoe that spelled out his first name. Walsh is relieved that his job search is over and said, "The pressure is off." Lego actually had a plant right here in Northern Colorado from 1968 to 1972. It was located in Loveland and was operated by Samsonite. They had a contract with Lego to build and distribute their bricks. Due to a licensing dispute the contact with Lego ended leaving Loveland Lego-less.
