Zome Geometry
George Hart home keep going!

"I have made a lot of geometric structures with Zome System geometry construction sets, and I've written a book called Zome Geometry. You snap together lots of struts and balls."
Zome balls have lots of openings: pentagons, triangles, and rectangles. Three kinds of struts fit into these three kinds of openings.
"You can start with something very simple, like a square."
"Then start snapping more struts into the balls to build something more complex."
"Here is one way to make an icosahedron with 20 triangles. Start by snapping red struts into one ball, wherever they fit into an opening. Place a ball on the end of each red strut. Connect these balls together with blue struts."
