Hey it’s Lego’s 55th year and they are celebrating with some very cool riddle based posters getting you to use your imagination to solve the “mystery.” The series is really very cool and some are quite challenging as well. Just like Legos … They’ve got a Tumblr apparently as well though the page seems to be MIA at the moment.

Between SimCity for Schools, 3D printing and LEGO Robots, education today is pretty awesome!
Educators will be able to create and share digital SimCity-based lesson plans that will encourage students to think critically about the challenges facing modern cities. In the classroom, SimCity will be more than a game – it will be a way for the next generation of leaders to hone their skills through urban planning, environmental management and socio-economic development.
“For decades, SimCity has been embraced by the educational community as an engaging videogame that also provides a powerful learning experience, teaching problem solving skills through imaginative civic gameplay,” said Lucy Bradshaw, Senior Vice President and General Manager of EA’s Maxis Label. “We want to up the ante of SimCity’s educational influence. Through our partnership with GlassLab, SimCity will become the foundation of a program to re-imagine learning in a way that will inspire today’s youth to get excited about STEM education and become the problem solvers of tomorrow.”
