Binding blocks: building the Universe one nucleus at a time
We present a new teaching and outreach activity based around the construction of a three-dimensional chart of isotopes using LEGO bricks. The activity, binding blocks, demonstrates nuclear and astrophysical processes through a seven-meter chart of all nuclear isotopes, built from over 26000 LEGO bricks. It integrates A-Level and GCSE curricula across areas of nuclear physics, astrophysics, and chemistry, including: nuclear decays (through the colours in the chart); nuclear binding energy...[Show more]
