Not an app but close enough - love it.

Elizabeth Bowden's curator insight, September 12, 2014 7:52 PM

In addition to using Lego for maths, I've taken my sons (extensive) Lego collection into History and Society & Culture to have the students (high school) demonstrate their understanding of concepts such as globalisation, communism, nationalism, capitalism. Worked really well and classes sooo happy. 


Having been broken up into groups and given a concept each, They created cities or environments demonstrating the concept then talked the rest of the class through.

Fantastic ideas for using lego in mathematics. Simple hands on tasks.

World's Tallest LEGO Tower Built by Delaware High School Students | Communication design |

Students across schools at red clay consolidated school district in Delaware, USA have participated in the completed the world's tallest LEGO tower. 

Specifically, a team of students from John Dickinson High School in Wilmington, sacrificed their entire summer to build the 112 foot tower-- but their work paid off. at a recent ceremony and community-wide 'towerfest,' Guinness Book of World Records has certified the structure as the officially the world's tallest freestanding LEGO tower, edging out the previous 106 foot tower from Prague. The 11 storey creation is made up of over 500,000 interlocking plastic bricks and weighs nearly a ton.
