Paper Engineering for Ages 10-14 (8 hours)
Create pop up cards and paper animations using paper folding, geometry and structures. Develop your spatial skills, maths and lateral thinking.
Students will learn the basic concepts that go into making pop up structures and paper models. By the end of all the sessions, students will be able to make their own popup cards, popup books and many other fun paper based animations.
These activities help students learn about geometry and structures and helps them develop their spatial skills, maths and lateral thinking.
Students will learn how to use paper cutters safely for the popup classes. They will learn the various techniques to make simple popup, paper based mechanisms and animations using paper. At the end of the class, we want to encourage students to be creative and design to use the techniques to create their own popup cards, books and paper animations.
