Engineers explore the properties of materials.

Few materials have as many varieties and possibilities as paper. Get to know paper tricks and techniques borrowed from cultures around the world. Experiment with familiar and new types of paper..

As the saying goes – start with a blank piece of paper. Fold it, roll it, cut it, tear it, wet it, smush it, bond it, apply it to create a colorful micro menagerie of animals as diverse and wild as you can imagine them.
