This project supports the structures and mechanisms component of the science and technology curriculum in many provinces and states. Curriculum expectations often include constructing a geodesic dome or shell structure. Geodesic domes demonstrate tension and compression in a unique structure. You can construct a geodesic dome out of a variety of materials, this dome is constructed of paper. Use the design concepts outlined here to construct domes of different sizes. Try materials like Bristol board, corrugated cardboard, plywood even ice!
