My kids adore Zometool (as do I)! It's an investment, but I can already see that we will continue to use the set for many years to come.”

This wonderful open-ended resource is a favorite of our homeschool. We love the case which keeps everything tidy and mobile. These manipulatives are engaging for young and old. The supporting curriculum can be adapted for any age. We have used Zometools for geometry, biology, chemistry and all sorts of STEAM's conceptual projects. This will soon become an activity in your home that instills the love of learn and the joy of being able to create projects with Zometools.”

We LOVE Zometool! Mostly the kids just use it to play with, but we've pulled them out to make fractal trees, water molecules, and the acropolis.”

The day our Zometool STEM Kit arrived was like Christmas. My children couldn't wait to help sort all the materials in the box. The next day they dived into making spinners. I'd never imagined my 4 children under the age of 10 so engrossed in science and math discoveries that they quietly worked together for more than 2 hours. The youngest (3 years old) was content to make and identify basic shapes (square, triangles, etc.). The older three worked on making spinners. The learned that the distribution of weight affected how long the spinner would spin. They constructed, tried them out, then reconstructed and tried them again. As a parent, it was an amazing thing to watch. Their father is a Civil Engineer. He watched in amazement and commented that he could see an enormous amount of potential learning with the Zometools. This is a product with unlimited education possibilities.”

We have enjoyed using the Zometools to build big structures, discuss symmetry, and have fun. They are also great for extending the length of time a child can concentrate. We have found that people of all ages, including adults, like to work with them but they are very challenging for some elementary children. The younger children have unintentionally broken some pieces and found it frustrating.

They are expensive so a cost share opportunity worked well for our group. The big kits are great for co-op groups.”

My children and I have really enjoyed Zometool. It has been exciting to see what they have built with this tool. It has been helpful for not only Geometry, but for 3D models in general. I love the instructions and examples of things you can make. My children have seriously loved this!”

My son is 15 and loves Zome tools. He planned the purchase of the largest set he had ever seen with the planned use of it for his future Math teaching endeavors - but more importantly use in his many math and science courses, plus loads of play time. It is his favorite toy - and then he is constantly learning and making connections academically from it. He had one stipulation from Mom and Dad - he had to pay for it. He offered his services as a piano, recorder, and choir teacher and volunteers at the local chapel and gets a few students from there too. He put in countless hours of work to get this wonderful tool/toy. He often disappears into his room coming out later with fantastic and innovative creations. He now shows it to his friends and teaches them about it. There are very few products that can have such eductional potential at the same time as really fun and flexible play - it's a constuction set with the most brains we've ever seen for the most educational levels that we've seen in a while. We definitley tell all our friends and homeschoolers.”

My son's love their Zometools kit. They love building and this is another tool to help with creativity. We love the bundle we got from HSBC.”
Christie, Co-op Member
My son loves Zometool. As a educator I love the diversity of what this work can do. We use it to problem solve, create and teach geometry. The possibilities to create, imagine and learn with Zometool are limitless. I think it is one of the best investments I have made in my child's education. The curriculum that comes with the kit are excellent with another book that goes up to secondary school concepts. I showed this kit to my brother who teaches engineering at a major university and he said he wish his students came into his class with the kind of understand of geometry that this manipulative tool teaches. This is an item that can change people's mindset about geometry. It is fun, engaging and Intutive, all skills we need Learners to cultivate to create a new generation of STEMS problem-solvers.”

I wanted to let you know we love the zometool kit we ordered! It arrived in just a few days. The boys love it!!! They are having a blast trying to build as many dimensions as they can.”
H. Ventura, Co-op Member
The minute I opened the zome tools box my 6 and 4 year old were enthralled. They spent hours building, practicing fine motor skills, learning geometry and symmetry and having fun playing with them in bubble solution. I can not recommend these highly enough. I have see 4 year olds and 50 year olds play with them for hours so they are great for all ages. Definitely one of the best purchases we've made.”
Carla M, Co-op Member
I cannot say enough good about Zome Tools. My kids use them every day in either play or work. We have learned so much from them and plan on incorporating them into our science fair projects this year. I look forward to many hours of use!”
Christine P., Co-op Member
We absolutely adore our Zometool. We use it in our Elementary classroom and the after-school students request to use it outside the class time. We plan to develop a summer program curriculum that will include using the Zometool. Parents have asked about the product and several have bought smaller kits to use at home.”

We purchased this for our 6 year old son who is an avid builder with a scientific and engineering bend. Although it's rather expensive, we knew we would have this for years to come so we made the investment.

To our happy surprise the kit came with much more than we expected. There seem to be a million pieces which are easily separated into their individual compartments for easy organization. The set also came with several colorful "projects" and experiments. There is even a lesson on black holes using Zome to make a bubble black hole. The lesson plans are also great and very helpful/informative.

Overall we love Zome and would highly recommend them. The only downside is that the tips of the rods/sticks aren't difficult to break. It's not super easy to break them but when left alone with two 7 year old boys, 4 pieces were mysteriously broken.”

My kids are in love with this building tool. I highly recommend it. Zometool offers something to kids with interests from science to art.”
Sara McGrath, Co-op Member
We made what we considered to be an investment in Zometool when our daughters were in 3rd and 1st grade. We saw it as a product that we would be able to use through high school with them. Right now, at these young ages, we have used Zometool to just enjoy building structures and we did the activities with bubbles. My husband attended pharmacy school and said he would have loved to have such a tool when taking chemistry courses. The lesson plans that come with this offer look fantastic and will help us get use out of it over the life of our homeschool.

Some of the rods are fragile. If you tug on them too hard when trying to dissemble a structure, be careful. It is a lot of pieces and packing the box isn't as simple as it seems but it does all fit into the carrying case.”
J. Gupta, Co-op Member
Fantastic! My kids love playing with this kit, but we also use it for geometry and building molecules. We haven't tried building viruses yet, but it looks fun. The kit came with tons of lesson ideas and all the needed instructions. My son is currently using the pieces to build a giant, pyramid-shaped "building." I think I have a budding young architect!”
Meredith Tally, Co-op Member
My 7yo son is absorbed with Zome, and has filled a room full of "structures" he has created. He is an energetic child, and yet he will be quietly focused on the building of new ideas for an hour or more at a time. He is just at the point of having to disassemble or redesign in order to have the pieces he needs for his creations. We highly recommend it for any family that loves to build.”
Christa, Co-op Member
We have really enjoyed the Zometool kit. It is a unique building kit that is allowing my younger children to discover mathematical and biological concepts that will be foundational in their education. They are already working on ways to save up and buy more struts and balls for even BIGGER projects! We take our Zome kit to our local co-op math team and share the fun in cooperative problem solving. Zome was our big dollar educational purchase this year and it was certainly worth it!”
Julie H., Co-op Member
Our homeschool family LOVES Zometool! We have especially enjoyed using our kit in combination with the Zometool Geometry book. It really cements geometric concepts to build and see and feel the various shapes and solids. It's really a must-have for studying geometry.”
A. Johnson, Co-op Member
We own the Creator 3 set of Zometool pieces, along with the Super-Do kit. I have found Zometool to be extremely engaging with my kids. The essentially infinite possibilities for connecting allow for some amazing creations.

My older son recently built the Super-Do, and we all had fun helping build some of the component parts. My younger son, who has some visual-spatial challenges, was able to succeed, through hands-on trial-and-error, building some large components based on a 3-d model. It was an excellent exercise for him, and he was proud he contributed to the final product.

Alas, it is common now for us to run out of pieces, and my children want to build more complex structures. I want them to be able to build real models of crystals, molecules, 3-d geometric structures and more. The amazing STEM+ kit has all of the pieces needed for all of the Zometool projects -- AND it stores them all neatly as well so we can find what we need easily without digging through parts. I know we will come back to this over and over for years.”
