Folding the Future: How Origami is Transforming Engineering


Folding the Future: How Origami is Transforming Engineering

Speaker: Dr. Mark Schenk
Lecturer in the Department of Aerospace Engineering. Mark held a position as post-doctoral researcher in deployable structures with the Surrey Space Centre at the University of Surrey, and with the Advanced Structures Group at the Cambridge University Engineering Department

Origami, the Japanese art of paper folding, is finding surprising applications in science and engineering. No longer restricted to folding paper planes, engineers now use origami to create self-assembling robots, designer materials and large deployable structures in space. In this talk we will explore how origami is transforming science and engineering, and reveal some of the elegant underlying principles of origami.
