Desiree broke us into teams to try and figure out how some of her finished examples (# 1 and 2 mainly) were made. Armed with only a few sheets of neon paper and our wits, we tried to take them apart and create new ones of our own. It was a brilliant teaching strategy. A few times I looked across the tables and saw everyone's eyebrows knit together in concentration.
By the end of the evening, each of us proudly held up at least one Sonobe 12-unit Octahedron and a 6-Unit Omega Star.
Here are some more pictures from the evening:
... including making and exploding a "butterfly ball!"
