The University of Cambridge has announced that it is seeking a professor of Lego to head the "Research Centre on Play in Education, Development and Learning," following a pledge of $6 million in funding from the Lego Foundation. So, it sounds like this Lego professor will be doing more observing children play with Lego blocks than playing with Lego blocks him- or herself. It also sounds like he or she will be a human person, and not a little Lego guy in tweed jacket. Oh well.
