LEGOs are a great tool for facilitating creativity and using your imagination, as well as a great way to promote Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). Many architects and engineers credit playing with LEGOs as children as a primary reason for sparking interest in their fields. Besides all of that, they are also just plain fun!
