The Topics in STEM class began the year with a virtual class day project designed to raise awareness and highlight the plight of a variety of threatened and endangered species. Students used spatial reasoning skills by practicing paper folding, researched their selected animals, and created displays incorporating origami and conservation information. Along the way, students also explored the practical applications of origami in architecture, aerospace engineering, and biomedical engineering.
The “Origami for Wildlife” projects are currently on display in the Huffington Library.
Origami projects below are: The Blue Whale, Leopard, and Elephants
