PRODUCT: GeoMobile Kit
SIZE: Spheres range from 3” to 6.5”
DESIGNER: Tim Tendick
Seven individual spheres balance perfectly to create a colorful mobile. The GeoMobile Kit, invented by Buckminster Fuller disciple Tim Tendick for Ikoso Kits, is a great cross-curricular resource. It creatively combines math, art, science, architecture and engineering. The mobile is constructed of five different types of spheres and connecting beams for balance. Mathematical and construction principles can be learned from the spheres and beams created in the mobile. Paper is precut and scored for easy assembly. Follow the instructions: punch the paper out of the flat sheets, fold on the scores and glue together. Two 10-ounce glue sticks, string or thread, and scissors are also required (but not included in the kit).
For ages 12+. CAUTION: possible choking hazard; keep out of reach of children under 3.
