This year is looking like a watershed year overflowing with Bucky events!

At the Synergetics Collaborative, we are most excited about the
"Revisit Bucky" event from June 11-13th, including the performance of
D.W. Jacobs' play R.  Buckminster Fuller: THE HISTORY (and Mystery) OF
THE UNIVERSE, our introductory Workshops on Geodesics, the Jitterbug, and
the closest packing of spheres, and the presentations by Amy Edmondson,
J. Marc Greuther of The Henry Ford Museum and other speakers at William
McDonough's new green building at the American University School of
International Service (SIS).
