Be the master of your own universe with brilliant block builder and physicist Ben Still. Make sure to have your LEGO to hand as you’ll be assembling different atoms to build your very own periodic table. The rules of nature definitely don’t apply in this fun and interactive session.

Please note that bookings will close 24 hours before the workshop is due to start.  


Dr Ben Still has been a big LEGO® fan ever since he was bought his first set as a young kid. When talking about particle physics to a general audience the fundamental particles are often referred to a nature’s most basic building blocks. Taking this idea, Ben developed ‘Build a LEGO® Universe’, outreach team at QMUL and has published a book Particle Physics Brick by Brick.
