This page is an excerpt of ideas used in the book Particle Physics Brick by Brick.
The outreach team at QMUL and myself developed an idea I had to use LEGO® to explain particle physics and the early history of the Universe. The resulting workshop ‘Build Your Own Universe’ proved a big hit with all ages both in schools and at public events such as the Big Bang Fair. Further workshops were then developed covering A-Level particle physics and GCSE radioactivity curricula.
