Our Facets have arrived

About two years ago we supported the Kickstarter campaign for Facets. The program had quite a few road blocks thrown in its way, but Ron Worley stuck with it and has nearly completed the project. Good for him.

Our package arrived last night and we did a quick project. Here’s the “unboxing”:

After opening the box I had each of the kids build a shape. Here’s what they had to say – younger son first:

Older son next:

I’m excited to do some more projects with the Facets – it was really cool to see how quickly the boys could create interesting shapes from 3d geometry. The Facets look like they’ll be a really fun tool to use to explore geometry with the boys.
