Truncated Tetrahedron

Today in class we made truncated tetrahedrons. If you would like to make your own, you can find the directions here –  Truncated Tetrahedron.

Below is a video showing how to fold the truncated tetrahedron. If you make 20 truncated tetrahedrons, you can put them together to form a geodesic dome!
