CANCELLED: The building blocks of matter: atoms or LEGOs? (Opens in a new window)

Michigan History Center, 702 W Kalamazoo St, Lansing, MI 48915


The periodic table organizes atoms into different elements, but the chart of nuclides is a better way to classify them. Discover the secrets of the nucleus by building a chart from towers of LEGO bricks, one for each of 130 isotopes in the first ten elements. The pattern of stable and radioactive nuclei will help explain the how the matter in your body was originally made in stars! Hosted by the Michigan History Museum and sponsored by the MSU Science Festival.
