"Zometool workshop"

Hanging from the rafters of M3 is a Zometool construction of a projection of the 120-cell: one of five exceptional convex regular polytopes, and the four-dimensional analogue of the dodecahedron. This seminar is a hands-on learning activity, where participants have the chance to construct a Zometool 120-cell, as well as other projections of four-dimensional geometric constructions as time permits. 

The first part of the seminar is a talk introducing the theory of regular polyhedra and polytopes, and at 2:30 we commence building some of the polytopes discussed in the Zometool system.
