Education that revolves around play may sound like every kid's dream, and for some children in Billund, Denmark, it is about to become a reality at a new school founded by Lego.
The International School of Billund is the idea of Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen, the third-gen former head of Lego. He is aiming to turn his hometown into a "capital of children".
The Kristiansen family's Lego Foundation will fund the project. The foundation, with a 25% stake in Lego Group, conducts and sponsors research into teaching and child development.
