Excellent Polyhedra Model

Go to this site:, and download the .skp model linked there. (This is a SketchUp file; if you need the application you can download it for free at

This was a project by Jon Choate and his students at Groton School. (Jon is the co-author of my GeomeTricks books.)

The dome itself is a polyhedron, and you can take a tour inside to see many colorful polyhedra "sculptures" on display stands. To take the tour, just click the Scene tabs at the top of the SketchUp window. Very cool!
