Season 2

CHALLENGE 3

Season 2 – STEAM Challenge 3 – #Flux2STEAM3

Paper Polyhedrons

For this challenge, you will build a paper polyhedra!

What are polyhedrons?

A polyhedra (plural = polyhedrons) is a 3-dimensional figure that is formed by 2 -dimensional polygons that enclose a region in space. If one side is not a polygon, then that object is not a polyhedra. Examples of non-polyhedrons are cones, spheres and cylinders. Each of those has a side that is not a polygon.

THINK ABOUT – How can 2D shapes fit together to make 3D objects?

YOU WILL EXPLORE:

  • Geometry
  • Shapes (Polygons)
  • 2D vs. 3D Objects

YOU WILL CREATE:

  1. A polyhedra – use whatever design, material, etc.
  2. A short video or images (Max. 1:30 minutes) that explains what you made.

REMINDER – YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BUILD THE ONE SEEN IN THE VIDEO. SEE MORE OPTIONS BELOW.

 

Polyhedrons

A polyhedron is a 3-dimensional figure that is formed by polygons that enclose a region in space. Each polygon in a polyhedron is a face. The line segment where two faces intersect is an edge. The point of intersection of two edges is a vertex.

 

 

Examples of polyhedrons include a cube, prism, or pyramid. Cones, spheres, and cylinders are not polyhedrons because they have surfaces that are not polygons. The following are more examples of polyhedrons:
