## How to Build a Geodesic Dome Out of Newspaper Rolls

Use lengths of 71 cm and 63 cm for your newspaper rolls. Roll them real tight. Instructions. Two videos:

• Using masking tape - YouTube Playground Science - kids build a dome at a science museum, with newspaper and masking tape (Note: If you build one of these use lengths of 71 cm and 63 cm  (71 / 63 = 1.13 is the proper ratio).)
• Using a stapler - YouTube - 2 guys explain - with newspaper and stapler.
• AlWood Science Club Geodesic Dome - "Our Science Club Students made their first Geodesic Dome. It was an awesome team building experience." (Woodhull, Illinois)
