In Laura Kampf’s latest video, she make a small greenhouse out of trash. She uses artist Tom Sachs’ Dome Recipe image to create a geodesic dome frame.
Ingeniously, she uses metal banding straps as the framing struts and sheets of scrap glass to make the triangles.
I’m not so sure how the hot glue(?) will hold up outside or how practical this greenhouse actually is, but it’s a neat proof-of-concept project. The banding as building material alone is worth the price of admission.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
