Students interested in "Origami Design" will likely have experience building or creating
using their hands. The activities included in this project will require dexterity
Students participating in this project will learn basic origami models along with
methods of paper folding which allow angle trisection and quintisection. The basic
origami models will be traditional in the sense that we will begin with a single piece
of polygonal shaped paper, making sharp straight-line creases, and we will not allow
any cutting. Freely available diagrams of many basic origami models can be seen at
