NUMBER KIDS Build Geodomes

Second grade NUMBER KIDS buddies from Essex joined us on Monday to learn about the strongest structure of building. A geodome! We learned how the triangles, verticies, and sides join together to make a structure strong enough to stand up to a hurricane.

Here is Quinn and Mr. Mallory demonstrating the push and pull of a triangle. Then it was time to build the geodome!


It gets bigger and bigger and stronger and stronger!

When completed our geodome was over 14 feet high, with 60 triangles! It was an amazing project and a fun activity to do with our buddies.
