If desired, the Lego walls and Lego baseplate can be removed as the gel will remain intact. The roots can then be imaged an additional time from the desired angles. 11. Gently toss the gel cube containing the plant against the bottom of a vessel. Root growth produce fractures in the gel.

LEGO bricks are commercially available interlocking pieces of plastic that are conventionally used as toys. We describe their use to build engineered environments for cm-scale biological systems, in particular plant roots.

We describe the design, characterization, and use of “programmable”, sterile growth environments for individual (or small sets of) plants. The specific relative humidities and nutrient availability experienced by the plant is established (RH between 15% and 95%; nutrient concentration as desired) during the setup of the growth environment, which takes about 5 minutes and <1$ in disposable cost.
Academic journal articles on the subject have such esoteric titles as “An Exploration of the Nanoworld with LEGO Bricks,” “Building Learning Curve and Script Theory Knowledge with LEGO,” and “LEGO Bricks as Building Blocks for Centimeter-Scale Biological Environments: The Case of Plants.”
