Making of Sierpinski tetrahedron

Students worked in groups and made many units of tetrahedrons by folding paper. They joined units of tetrahedrons and further created a bigger unit of tetrahedrons. This way after repeating the process they made a big unit of tetrahedron.
What is a Sierpinski triangle?
It is a fractal created using an equilateral triangle. An equilateral triangle is divided into four triangles by joining mid-points of line segments. Then the central triangle is removed. This way a Sierpinski triangle is generated.

A Sierpinski tetrahedron is the 3D version of it.
