Participants can experiment with building a series of dynamic linkages, mainly triangular and cubic kaleidocycles with the LUX construction system. In order to make the required movements with LUX, a new LUX module has been developed. The new module will be introduced in the workshop, and participants will be asked to assess the further educational, artistic and creative potentials this module offers to the LUX system. After the introductory activities, participants will experiment on how to study these topics in multidisciplinary settings by using LUX in the mathematics classroom. The workshop combines hands-on geometry learning with other subjects, like arts, engineering and design.
