Here are more online access

unit origami folding paper dumpling (3) and cube (6), and icosahedron (30 pieces, 60 faces) - ;-)

  • here is a video showing you how to make the unit origami cube and icosahedron (i showed you the dumpling today, the dumpling fold would come in handy when doing the icosahedron, normally i made 5 cubes, then take them apart to put them together)

  • For the week #1 unit origami that can be made into 3D origami - here is a preview of the work you can build all with just that one unit - (click through the pages, each of course takes patience and time)

week 6 (9/23, 9/25)

September 23

0. please upload your field observation reports in the class wiki of your group (as indicated before) before the class

1. each team will have 5 min to present their findings from the observations - no more than 10 slides please

2. please also print out posters for each one of the issues from your team, and post them on the walls of the break room

please have one poster for each issue - the size for each issue should be at least 22 x 17 size (it doesn't need to be fancy, can be composed of multiple pages of letter size, but the issue, problem definition, and related info should be clearly visible)

- the goal - to have all 21 issues clearly visible and displayed in the break room (so that we can do prioritization, and have each person to select their top choices of problems to work on)

HSI students may know where to find easels and foam core boards if you want to mount them up, or find good tapes that won't harm the paints on the wall.. Alicia probably know where to order the removable tapes for mounting posters..

anyhow - please put the poster ups in clockwise fashion on the wall - for example, Groups 1, 2, 3 on the right hand side wall of the break room (207), 4 on the end wall, and 5, 6, 7 on the left hand side.

we will bring post-it notes so that you can each write your name, disciplines and the preferred problems to work on, or something like that

September 25

Please complete IRB training AsAP.. post your certificate on your member page when you have it

  • think about meaningful problems, possible solutions and innovations!..
  • we should be finding what problems are - then figure out what innovations we can do to help solve the problems ;-)

Project Teams and Members

Each team should

(1) identify at least 5 principles for the project
