Build Your Own Universe
This resource, produced by SEPNet and Queen Mary University of London, uses Lego to represent the building blocks of matter. Different colour Lego bricks are assigned to different quarks and leptons. The quarks can be put together to make hadrons, such as protons and neutrons. The blocks can also be used to show particle interactions and decays. The resource displays timings from the beginning of the universe, and shows how Lego bricks can be used to describe the synthesis of lighter elements, such as hydrogen and helium, up to carbon.
