Lego, a toy which gave us the building blocks to the future. From the simple block to the amazing NXT system, Lego has helped us create things for the future. It is a great tool to engage people in building things. Simple model and functional prototypes, Lego is truly limited by our own imagination. 

Our friends at Tufts University use Lego as a teaching tool to help extend Science and Technology learning in schools. The National Junior Robotics Competition & Lego league at the Science Centre Singapore is also another great avenue of learning about the skills of prototyping with Lego.

Check out some of the cool Lego Prototypes….
