Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

Access to supplies is often a barrier to learning yet amazing projects can be made with just paper,tape and scissors. Paper is an amazingly versatile material and a great medium for introducing students to engineering fundamentals. I have developed and easy to implement methodology for “engineering with paper” that gets students building and creating confidently.

Outline

Hands on activities using just paper tape and scissors. We will build a paper catapult.

Supporting research

I have four articles published in the NY Times.
