Dr. X, professor of Lego


The University of Cambridge is opening its doors for a new professor heading a new department….of legos!

The university accepted 1.5 million pounds ($2.3 million) from the Lego Foundation to launch the new department, and will continue to be financed with an additional 2.5 million pounds ($3.9 million). This new research center is a continuation of an alliance with the Lego Foundation, MIT, and Tsinghua University in China on research related to children’s play.

The new position is focusing on finding someone who is enthusiastic about the plastic toys and on children’s education.
