dodecahedronZometool is a unique 31-zone system that takes three dimensional geometric ball-and-stick construction to its highest level. Available in kits of various sizes, Zometool is a powerful design tool and educational toy for kids and hobbyists, students, teachers and researchers.
Zome System is a masterpiece of technology. Color- and shape-coded parts integrate the concepts of number, shape and vector into a fascinating toy. The pieces are made using the math which governs the growth of cells, crystals, and other natural forms. Zome System builds an amazing variety of structures impossible to make with any other hands-on learning tool. Versatile and precise. No other modeling system comes close.

Precision-molded in ABS plastic, Zometool models spatial structures representing hyperspaces of up to 31 dimensions, geodesic space-frame structures, molecular models, including quasicrystals andSquashed cube 2.jpg (10926 bytes) Fullerenes.

The simple elegance of Zometool allows anyone to make complex geometric models with little effort. Of course, kids benefit the most from Zometool, which allows them to build vivid, memorable structures that appeal to the eye, attract the heart, and sharpen the mind.

The Pioneer Kit is great for people who have never experienced Zome System. Builds the simplest models, from a “squashed” icosahedron, to a house, a flower, or a mathematically correct shadow of a 4-D cube.

“You don't have to be a rocket scientist to enjoy Zometool... but we love it too!.”
- Dr. David Noever, NASA Staff Scientist
Tetranim

“Beautifully made - the perfect construction kit for icosahedral quasicrystalline models, and for many structures of mathematical interest.”
- Roger Penrose, Oxford University mathematician

“The Zometool considerably simplifies the procedure of construction and unifies the study of space frame structures into one coherent system, of great educational value in the teaching of solid geometry, science, art, engineering and architecture.”
- H. S. M. Coxeter,mathematician
dodecahedron

“Zometool helps me make beautiful objects. I love it!”
- John Conway, mathematician

“Useful in my studies of nuclear structure and quasicrystalline materials.”
- Linus Pauling, Nobel Laureate

Artists, architects, engineers, physicists, parents, and teachers love Zome System for its amazing flexibility and educational value. But kids know the real secret: it's FUN!

A mechanical puzzle is a self-contained object, composed of one or more parts, which involves a problem for one person to solve by manipulation using logic, reasoning, insight, luck, and/or dexterity.” - Jerry Slocum
