I periodically sweep two of the biggest vid clip repositories, in search of math-relevant inventory. Surprisingly, pickings are slim.

I searched on 'polyhedra' again just now and pulled up this short about turning a truncated octahedron into a cube. Note the cameo appearance by a star wannabe hamster.

If your school offers training in video editing (only some wealthier schools do), think about these healthy outlets for students' creativity, doing something good for one's long term portfolio for a change (yes, future employers will be impressed if you were doing quality geometry videos in 8th grade).
