Seeing the World in LEGO: Mixing Creativity, Art and STEM
BY LUKE LYONS
@ VOL 19
ON JUN 04, 2019
What if the world was made of LEGO? In this talk, Luke Lyons shares how he sees the world as tiny plastic interlocking bricks. Lyons, like many children, grew up playing with LEGO, but today he uses LEGO as an outlet for his creativity and artistic side. He has created LEGO scale buildings of old high schools, university buildings, train stations and designed his own museum specifically for the purpose of displaying a LEGO Tyrannosaurus rex. He discusses how LEGO promotes creativity in STEM education, while still accessing the arts.
