- An overview of the Construction Kit
Use our brightly-coloured, precision-manufactured, sturdy cardboard shapes and the elastic bands supplied to easily assemble an wide range of objects.
Construction Kit: Super
The Super Kit, perfect for the classroom environment, contains more than 600 shapes (polygons) – enough to build all of the Platonic solids, all of the Archimedean solids and more – the number is limited only by the imagination! The kit includes a booklet with instructions on how to build the shapes (polyhedra) and a number of suggestions on how the kits can be used in the study of geometry.
Construction Kit: Standard
The Standard Kit contains more than 200 shapes (polygons) – also enough to build each of the Platonic solids and each of the Archimedean solids – however not enough pieces to build all of these polyhedra at once. The kit includes a booklet with instructions on how to build the shapes (polyhedra) and a number of suggestions on how the kits can be used in the study of geometry.
- GeoGenius Construction Kit history
GeoGenius began in 2004 with teacher and educationalist Aarnout Brombacher. Aarnout has accumulated extensive expertise on how geometry stimulates a child’s development. Aarnout developed the GeoGenius Construction Kit because he believes that, for children, geometry begins with play. A GeoGenius Construction Kit is not only educational, it’s also a joy to play with. The kit gives children the chance to learn the properties of shapes and objects while at play. In addition, they get to enjoy the beauty of their own creations!
Spatial understanding helps:
- The development of mathematics
- An appreciation of aesthetics
- An understanding of science
- Reasoning in a deductive manner
- GeoGenius Construction Kit poster
A glossy, A1 poster printed on sturdy cardboard depicting 130 geometric objects that can be constructed using the GeoGenius Construction Kit. These objects are comprised of:
- Platonic Solids
- Johnson Solids
- Archimedean Solids
- Pyramids, Prisms and Anti-Prisms
- Stellated and Faceted Solids
These geometric objects are displayed on the poster with their corresponding names in a key below.Construction Kit poster
