  2. 2. Outline Enjoying, building, and thinking about 3D Polyhedra with primary focus on the Platonic and Archimedean solids We will build with: 1. Unit Origami 2. Polydrons 3. PHiZZ Units 4. Coffee Stirrers and Fuzzy Sticks Discussion points about the polyhedra and online resources will be intermingled.
  3. 3. Overview Our goal is to build (at least) one model with each building material at each table. In some cases we’ll need to work together at the table to complete the model, due to our limited time. The Unit Origami, PHiZZ Units, and Coffee-Stirrer-and- Fuzzy-Stick models can be taken with you. Each table can decide who gets what.
