A PhD student over at the Liverpool student has decided to go ahead and elevate the game of LEGO engineering to a completely unprecedented level of detail by developing a potential LEGO kit that aims to mimic the Large Hadron Collider.

Nathan Readioff's creation takes into account the Large Hadron Collider's four gigantic detectors that record proton collision remnants, with the model representing these detectors in miniature scale.

While there may be some understandable concerns that the Large Hadron Collider might be too complicated for a LEGO engineering example, this particular model gets around that by stylizing the four detectors in order to prevent them from being too complicated. Indeed this LEGO engineering design is a fantastic example of toy building blocks being used to further science education and awareness.
