Engineering With Paper: Simple Supplies For Complex Projects

Engineering With Paper: Simple Supplies For Complex Projects

Access to supplies is often a barrier to learning yet amazing projects can be made with the simplest supplies. Paper is commonly used for drawing but most people think to use it for 3-dimensional projects. Paula will show you a series of techniques for making hands on, interactive projects with just paper, tape & scissors. This workshop will get you cutting, folding and building while helping you plan projects that you can do immediately with your students.
