"A professor of Lego could soon be in post at Cambridge University.

The Lego Foundation has provided the university with £2.5m to fund a Lego Professorship of Play in Education, Development and Learning.

It has also provided £1.5m to support a play research centre in the education faculty, which will be led by the Lego professor."

    The title is a bit misleading (but hey... journalism) as it's actually a professor of play and learning (I guess researching that sort of stuff, which still sounds like a doddle) and is sponsored by the Lego Company. Hence 'Lego Professorship'. I'm just trying to put you all off so there's no competition when I apply.
