Paper Engineering – All New!
Sponsored by Occidental Petroleum and The William Stamps Farish Fund
Paper is…well, flat. Very flat. Flat and listless. BUT, did you know that paper actually has some unique properties? In the right hands, it is a canvas of potential waiting for a creative spark to transform it into something more! In “Paper Engineering,” we want YOU to be that spark. Join the Children’s Museum of Houston as we unfold this brand-new exhibit. Learn to cut, roll, crease and shape that flat paper into things that spin, fly and pop!
Help paper evolve beyond its normal flat, 2-D world by using it to:
– Make vehicles that float and fly.
– Build crazy towers.
– Shape shadows into pictures.
– Play games and shoot hoops.
– Create rings, hats, boomerangs, and boats.
– Tell stories through pop-ups.
– AND SO MUCH MORE – over 50 different paper challenges and projects to try out!
