LEGOS: play toy or learning tool?

Legos recently launched a new product in its Architectural line that is sure to make a great addition to most any kid’s (or adult’s) toy box. The uber cool Lego Architecture Studio is a 1200-piece set of bricks, complete with a book that gives your aspiring architects some nuggets of wisdom from some of the foremost architectural minds of our time.

It’s a great reminder that for all the learning potential of its robotics products, like Legos Mindstorm EV3, there’s nothing quite like Legos building blocks for having fun while learning some of the fundamental skills for a career in engineering or technology.

The video above gives you a glimpse at some the original and re-created masterpieces that people have built using Legos Architecture products.
