Our tenth meeting of this semester will be this Sunday, and we have a special session lined up:
This Sunday Wensdy Whitehead will teach a modular Snapology Icosahedron. This is a class (no diagrams) and the model may take the full two hours depending on folding speed, so show up on time if possible in order to fold a complete icosahedron with us. Snapology is a very simple and flexible technique developed by Heinz Strobl to model polyhedra. Though the class tackles icosahedra specifically, the techniques apply to whatever polyhedra you might want to model afterward -- just add geometry! Many examples (including some which do not model polyhedra) will be on display: let them inspire you!
Note the venue change -- this is not our usual room!
Date: Sunday, April 20th
As always, paper will be provided with access to our substantial origami book library.
