UA researchers solve engineering problem with help from Legos


Researchers at the University of Akron have studied the design of Legos and come up with a way to make strong aerogel structures.

UA researchers found a way to engineer them better by emulating Legos.

“The Lego-like aerogel bricks are made from polymer struts with the interior space filled with aerogels.”
