Origami Engineering Fills the StudioLab

On Tuesday, November 15, the CST proudly hosted the second installment of “Origami Engineering,” an event where attendees apply simple folding rules to design and fabricate reconfigurable structures that can be used across different scales and applications including medical devices, robotics, and deployable structures. Led by graduate students Emily Alcazar (CEE) and Ava Vanech (ARC), the evening attracted over 60 attendees who created two different types of structures. We were particularly excited to have origami engineering experts Professor Tomohiro Tachi from the University of Tokyo and Princeton’s own Professor Glaucio Paulino joining us! In addition to providing a fantastic learning experience, the Origami Engineering workshop helps to promote Professor Paulino’s wonderful new course, CEE 345/EGR 345/STC 345/MSE 345: Origami Engineering.
