At first, it might seem that making origami animals should be in art class! And it could be, of course. It began as an art form in Japan. Now, however, the techniques are helping science, technology, and engineering in many ways. This product provides patterns to fold 11 animals, as well as a beginning list of how origami has been used (and IS used) in science fields.
