Zometool - The Buckyball
Named after the inventor of the geodesic dome, the "Buckyball" is a nick name for a Carbon 60 molecule. Like the face of a Soccer Ball, the face of a Buckyball consists of 20 hexagons and 12 pentagons.
This Zometool set allows you to build a fantastic model of a Buckyball using simple plastic sticks and spheres. It makes a great school science project or just plain Zome fun, complete with facts to know and tell. See the video below for more information.
All Zometool kits are compatible with each other, so once one set has been purchased, the possibilities are endless, further sets can be purchased separately and combined to make bigger and better models.
Great for children who love to create and build their own creations and need a change of pace from Lego. A great construction toy that gets them thinking about science, domes, molecules and compounds!
Contains: 60 black nodes, 90 short blue struts and step-by-step instructions.
Recommended for ages 6 to adult.
