EUREKUS STEAM PROJECT - Geometry Meets Technology:
Illuminate geometry with a cool tech twist! Transform adorable Polyhedra paper sculptures into enchanting nighlights using LEDs. Our Polyhedra Nightlights project is a hit with all ages in classrooms, camps and enrichment time. Plus, it’s a fun activity for parties and Maker events.
From crystals and chemistry to history and architecture, polyhedra are cool shapes that are important in nature, science and engineering. This Art Instructable features large and small templates for 5 regular polyhedra that were described by Plato – the Platonic Solids. The Instructable also includes templates to make a paper Battery Base to house LED lights, step-by-step instructions and tech supply resource links. Creating 3D shapes from 2D paper is tactile and fun way for learners to engage with geometry and technology - discovering while making!
