C60's bead models for the International Chemistry Olympiad 2015, Azerbaijan

I am a member of Taiwan Chemistry Olympiad team for the 2015 IChO (International Chemistry Olympiad) which will be held next week at Baku, Azerbaijan. We prepared many C60 bead models as souvenirs for participants from around the world. To make about 200 bead models of C60. we got help from chemistry teachers and many senior students of the Taipei First-Girl School (TFGH). Most of these students have just got acceptances from colleges and have some spare time to help us prepare these beautiful bead models.
However, it is fun to make one's own beaded C60, so Chia-Chin and I also prepared about 200 kits of materials and detailed instruction for making C60.

I gave a workshop for the summer chemistry camp of the chemistry department at the National Taiwan University early this month. This is a summer camp for the local high school students. There are about 60 participants this year. Here a few photos from the workshop:
