Mechanical Paper

Feedback form is now closed.
During Mechanical Paper, attendees will gain first-hand knowledge of cams, cranks, and gears by making simple paper-crafted machines. Participants will leave the session with their newly constructed models and be able to take their knowledge back to the classroom to engage their students in art and science. Theories of science will come to life for students by utilizing simple materials like paper, scissors, and glue to create a unique model. Because no special tools or skills are required to make paper machines, this art and science activity is especially attractive for teachers on limited budgets. Additionally, basic paper crafting techniques will be covered such as cutting, folding, scoring, and assembling. Although this session is designed as an introduction to paper mechanics, a closing discussion will highlight additional possibilities to scaffold this project into more advanced options.
