In their public "geometry lesson" the students will be using the construction toy Zometool. Employees of the company will be on hand to offer support. Zometool is suitable for the construction of large models such as Platonic solids or hypercubes in the fourth dimension.
Math students from Freie Universität undertook a similar project in July 2011, when they put together the largest model of a Platonic solid in four-dimensional space. It had 20,000 components.
