Origami Engineering Workshop

Event Description

Learn how you can use simple folding rules to design and fabricate reconfigurable structures that can be used across different scales and applications ranging from medical devices, robotics, deployable structures, etc. During the workshop, people will be able to build two different types of structures: (1) a Zipper-tube that will be folded and glued together from pieces of paper and (2) a bi-stable or pop-up origami star that will be assembled from laser-cut patterns. 

This workshop has been designed to promote the new course CEE 345/EGR345: Origami Engineering.

Dinner (Sushi!) will be provided. Registration required.
