Description: LEGO is a versatile pedagogical tool for physical science courses. It can be used to visualize concepts qualitatively and quantitatively in physics. I will show activities using the toy bricks to promote student comprehension of abstract theories and making intellectual concepts touchable. This presentation targets all science educators.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Use LEGO bricks to visualize science concepts
  2. Use LEGO bricks to implement hands-on student classroom activities
  3. Discuss creative teaching strategies.
