Students enrolled at the James F. Doughty School in Bangor recently constructed a Stage 6 tetrahedron containing 4,096 individual tetrahedrons. The project originated with the book “All of the Above,” in which author Shelly Pearsall tells the story of four inner-city students who set a goal of building the largest tetrahedron in the world. While reading the book, Doughty School students decided to build a large tetrahedron; the completed tetrahedron involved more than 400 people, including students and teachers. Among the Doughty School students participating in the project were (kneeling) Elizabeth Remington and (standing, from left) Kyle Hylan-Corcoran, David Rubin, Gage Noyes, Noah Murphy, Joe Montemurro, and Hannah McCarthy.
