The Dome

A Geodesic Dome Trellis constructed by the students of the Academy at Charlemont

In 2021, students in Environmental Science at the Academy at Charlemont collaborated with students in Geometry to design and build a 24-foot wide geodesic dome trellis. Using hand tools, materials harvested from the campus grounds, and fruit vines that will nourish future Academy community members, students created a green gathering space that will serve the future Academy community as a living homage to sustainability and community.

Featured on our website, you will find a photo gallery, writing reflections, and a podcast, all put together by the students of environmental science class!
