Zometool, Inc.
 
Made for kids, used by Nobel-Prize winners. Zometool is the simple yet profound building “toy” that allows your imagination and intelligence to build on one another as you experience art and science at play. Words don’t really capture it (like riding a bike): If you DO it, you GET it!
