Session topic: Mobius Kaleidocycles
A kaleidocycle is a three-dimensional ring, composed of a series of linked tetrahedra. Instead of the classical, very popular, kaleidocycles with even numbers (usually six, sometimes eight) of elements, we will build kaleidocycles with 7 or 9 elements and several different surface designs. Moreover, we will learn that it is possible to construct kaleidocycles with any number of elements greater than or equal to six. These new kaleidocycles have two novel properties: they have only a single degree of freedom and they have the topology of a Mobius band.
