The Countdown to Maker Faire Bay Area is On!


Make Podcast: Weekend Projects – Picnic Geometry

In this weeks video edition of Weekend Projects, learn to make geometric spheres from all sorts of things you might find at a picnic. Watch the video to see how to build an icosohedron out of paper plates, cups, and plastic sheeting. This is a great project to do as a family, just make sure you have enough supplies for each person involved to make one! If possible, use recycled materials!

Make sure to go read the companion instruction post!

Thanks to Sparky and JR who helped me with video at the park.

    Super cool projects Bre. I’m curious long did the inflatable thing stay inflated? 2 minutes? 20 minutes?
