Do you dream of creating an architectural wonder? Find out the extent of your engineering capabilities by using gumdrops and toothpicks to build a geodesic dome and then test its strength.

One of the most famous geodesic domes is Epcot Center at Walt Disney World. Other examples of these domes are the climbing structures you sometimes find at a playground. Learn how the construction of geodesic domes make them one of the strongest designs and then build your own. We'll finish by testing their strength. Is it sturdy enough to support one book? Maybe two books? Let's find out! Activities are designed for ages 9 and up.
