LU-MRRL Lecture Series: Kirigami Crafts
February 16 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Origami–the Japanese art of folding paper–and its cutting variation Kirigami, are among the most popular crafts we learn as kids. The joy of creating interesting shapes from a flat sheet is something we carry well into adulthood.
Get ready to make Kirigami paper crafts with Dr. Vianney Gimenez-Pinto, assistant professor of physics and chemistry. In her talk, she will also explore how folding a paper airplane or cutting a paper snowflake has inspired applied scientists and engineers toward developing new materials, devices, and technologies.
