A week’s worth of work all came together on June 2 for Zach Hermann’s geometry classes, as his students exhibited their inflatable designs before members of the Evanston Township High School faculty. 

Students worked in groups to design and build their own inflatable using a 40 inches by 100 feet sheet of material given to them by Mr. Herman. Designs included a 20-foot- high pyramid, a rectangular prism inside a prism, a piñata and a house.  

The biggest challenge was fixing the many holes that opened on their inflatable, some students said. However, Mr. Herman said, students credit this as their favorite project for the class.
