Five Intersecting Tetrahedra

You may have heard of the dodecahedron, the classic 12-faced polyhedron, but this week we’ll take a look inside this hedron and discover that there is more than meets the eye. As it turns out, 5 tetrahedra can fit in an intersecting pattern with each of the tetrahedral corners coinciding with the dodecahedron’s!

Harry will be teaching this model and it ranges from beginner to intermediate-advanced depending on how many tetrahedra are folded and linked together. If time runs out, worry not as even folding a singular tetrahedron looks neat!
