Lego Serious Play (LSP) is a methodology that helps people brainstorm and discuss complex ideas through storytelling and metaphors. LSP has been successfully applied as a mechanism for creative learning and team building. In this paper, we discuss using LSP to teach core topics of Cyber Security and Resilience (CS&R) in higher education. Initial results suggest that LSP has a positive impact on student learning, while also improving student engagement both, within the course and in their business environment. While the use of LSP discussed here focuses on its implementation in CS&R courses, this highly transferable methodology can be applied across the spectrum of disciplines and for multiple purposes. In addition, it can also be used to facilitate cyber security awareness or risk assessment workshops in various environments.
