Bucky Ball Materials Kit


The Materials Kit includes 12 buckyball kits, each with 6 color coded paper strips and an instructional information sheet designed by graphic artist Audrey Bennett–you only need supply tape. Because carbon atoms use the same family of shapes, this engaging hands-on paper construction kit also teaches about nanotechnology structures such as buckyballs, nanotubes and other “fullerene” molecules.


The materials kit accompanies the Bucky Ball Toolkit that teaches computational thinking through the making of buckyballs using the Global Indigenous process of hexastrip weaving, a geometric technique used by African, Native American, and Malaysian artisans to form baskets, balls and other shapes.
