Space Origami

space origami

Did you know that the concept of folding paper has been used in space as solar arrays? These origami-inspired solar arrays are compactly folded at the time of launching, and expanded to cover a large area once in space.

Origami artist Yuki Martin will show you a variety of collapsible folding methods used in space and teach at least one of the folding patterns. She will also show you space-themed origami models, such as an alien and a star.

For families with children ages 8 and up.
