Bring paper to life with circuits! We love origami and wanted to add more to the traditional art of paper folding. By adding simple circuits to paper sculptures you can instantly animate them and create unique sculptures.
You can start simple and add a light or two and then make more complex modular systems with your origami robot sculpture. You can also add a small motor and see how it affects the movement of the sculpture based on where you attach it.
Each lesson is matched to Common Core and NGSS learning standards for integrated STEM learning. Collaborate and make a giant super gadget, or work in smaller groups to make personal projects.
