LEGO Kits and Your Creative Soul

“According to new research by business professors Page Moreau and Marit Gundersen Engset, there is a serious, meaningful, and potentially long-term difference between those who “free build,” meaning they put the bricks together without a guide, and those who follow the instructions. In the lab, those who put together kits were less creative when they completed follow-up tasks. Researchers say instruction-following and free-building are two different “mindsets.” The way we use LEGO provides the perfect window into a growing challenge we face: how to encourage creative thinking not just for children, but employees and businesses who always have to come up with the next big thing.” Listen to the full podcast that looks at the ways to unlock creativity. Uncertainty, play and learning through the solving became paramount; our Hands On! music and art classes take this same approach!
