The Pentagon Project


Some of you asked to see Big Guy's pentagon project. This is the model he made. He also had to do a 11 slide Power Point project that include all of the geometric aspects of the building as well as it was a project for his math class.


Fast Facts About The Pentagon (Yes, I Learned Something Too!)
*  200 acres of lawn that parks approximately 8,770 cars in 16 parking lots
*  4,200 clocks
*  691 water fountains
*  284 rest rooms
*  consume 4,500 cups of coffee, 1,700 pints of milk and 6,800 soft drinks
*  takes only seven minutes to walk between any two points in the building
*  completed on Jan. 15, 1943 at an approximate cost of $83 million
*  consolidated 17 buildings of the War Department
*  The Pentagon has no marble because it was built during World War II, and Italy, the source of marble, was an enemy country.

That is amazing!! I am really impressed. I have to argue with the 7 minutes thing - that assumes you know where you are going. The offices are numbered kind of weird - according to wing, ring, and hall. The last time I went - my boss got the numbering mixed up and we wandered around that thing forever! ha.
