On February 15, 2018, students in Dr. Yolanda Kirkpatrick’s Project Based Instruction class volunteered at the STEM Family Engagement Night at Inskip Elementary School. Students Will Kirkpatrick and Amyee Alexander showed attendees the art of Origami.
Origami is the art of paper folding, which is often associated with Japanese culture. Origami principles are now used in a wide variety of STEM applications – from the design of satellites, to heart stents, to self-assembling robots, and much more.
Over 100 families attended Inskip’s family STEM night. For more information about upcoming STEM events, visit the Center for Enhancing Education in Mathematics and Sciences website.
