Get kids excited about science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics (STEAM) with this fun hands-on collaborative project. Typically done during a Family Math Night event, this project can also be done in the classroom. The best part is, each person is individually represented in the final product!
Participants will learn how a soccer ball design is based on a truncated icosahedron through an introduction to 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional geometry. They will create one of the panels of the truncated icosahedron which will be used to construct a soccer ball with a 13 inch diameter.
