Kilgraston school assembly on Lego

Aside from top construction and creative skills, what else can Lego teach us? According the Kilgraston’s Head of Geography, Dr Phillips, a great deal.

Showing us his extraordinary ‘Stranger Things’ Lego set (pictured), in this week’s school assembly, Dr Phillips discussed the lessons we could and should all learn from the construction toy firm. Looking back on the history of the company – an interesting angle for our Young Enterprise teams – we learnt that out of 1,000,000 pieces only 18 are unusable, that initially Lego was only made in primary colours to avoid it being used to make army trucks and the like, and that Lego can be used for years before it wears out.

Dr Phillips pointed out aside from the fun and creativity Lego gives us three top tips we could all learn and live by:
1. Setting the highest of standards for ourselves.
2. Planning for the future.
3. Prioritising creativity over conflict.

Thank you Dr Phillips for another captivating assembly. You can read about more of the thought-provoking assemblies here and watch some here.
