Infographic Principles Explained By Lego
Stepping on “Data” barefoot in the middle of the night is NO JOKE.
I wonder if the fact that the arranged set isn’t in the same order as the presented visually set would throw some students off — I would imagine arranging it would involve putting it in a particular order. At least, that’s how I was taught (both in education and psychology). Aside from that (which can be discussed with students anyway), I think this is a stellar concept and could make a potentially great poster for a classroom.
That would depend on what kind of story you wanted to tell with the data. For example, if you were showing a bar graph of likely voters by age demographic, you might arrange the data with the age demographics in increasing order, but you may not know the nature of the article/paper it would be displayed in, or maybe it will be used in multiple places, each wanting to emphasize a different aspect of it.

It’s $34.99 and has 480 pieces including a Player and Creeper Micromob figures.
I…am going to have to get this for my younger cousins.
It’s official. Your science is boring, and these people’s is awesome. Michelle Oyen’s lab at Cambridge has been working on growing bones using scaffolds and chemical engineering. It’s a painstaking process that involves hours and hours of dips in various bone-making chemicals in order to get a final product. Sounds like a job for a robot, right?
It turns out that Lego Mindstorm kits can do the job just fine, and for far cheaper than most robots. They plan on expanding their use to other projects in the near future.
This is so unfair. I mean, not only are they building bones in a lab, which is awesome, but they get paid to play with Legos! On second thought, maybe my childhood has provided me with a new resumé entry?
They’re building bones…with Lego robots. I love science.
