Mathematics help origamists decide whether or not a design can be folded, but origami is also a great way of building mathematical objects such as polyhedra. Join us to build some 3D stars and study their mathematical properties. Because the more folding you do, the more stars you’ll be able to assemble, we recommend you join with your friends or family and work together.
