Building Human Spinal Columns out of LEGO with Stanford Neuroscientists

On December 5th, 2016,Stanford University Brain Development Department and Play-Well TEKnologies helped families in the Palo Alto community build human spinal columns out of LEGO.  The goal was to raise awareness about STEM education, as well as connect the Palo Alto community to the research being done at Stanford University.  Over 500 parents and kids from Palo Alto participated in the event.  As a group, they attempted to break two Guinness World Records.  One of the tallest LEGO spinal column and one for the most anatomically correct spinal columns.  They ended up building 86 anatomically correct LEGO spinal columns and one spinal column that was 9 Ft. 2 inches.

The San Francisco Chronicle covered the event.  SF Chronicle LEGO Spinal Column Event
