Talk on Geodesic Frameworks
May 4, 2020, 5 pm – 6 pm
at the Utica Public Library (303 Genesee Street)
The Geodesic Dome was given to the world by R. Buckminster Fuller over 60 years ago. Science teacher Natalie M. Williams intends to revitalize the concept of Geodesics through education workshops and construction camps. Geodesic Structure Frameworks – domes (hemispheres) and spheres (soccer balls) are made up of hexagons and pentagons; these open span structures are remarkably light and strong.
People will make paper models of domes & spheres, and build a 5-foot diameter Sphere! All materials will be provided.
DomesForThePeople provides geodesic education to communities & Connector Hubs for Do-It-Yourself spherical frameworks.
