BG. Bamboopalooza!

Join Chaim and Kyle at Bamboopalooza 3! Octahedral pencil holders, giant 12 pointed bamboo stars, pig lighters and other mathematical oddments were enjoyed by all!

We’re pretty sure people had a hard time imagining just what we were up to that day! Here are some pix!

The folks from Thailand assemble a bamboo star…

Some of the finished products…

Other fun!

Chris Bray took some excellent photos!

    In our Greetings From the Math Factor post we released the plans for:

    An amazing pencil sculpture kit!! Yes, at last, this is now available to the world! Obtain thirty pencils, twelve rubber bands, some tape, and print out _three_copies_ of this sheet, preferably onto cardstock. Read the instructions carefully. Do NOT poke out an eye.

    These are the exact same plans, scaled down to pencil size, that we used to make the bamboo stars in the photos above.
