Origami has had a strong impact on the direction of various industries including structural engineering, fashion design, the medical field, and nanorobotics, and the evidence of its influences in these and other disciplines are growing. These pieces are a study of both a progression of slightly differing patterns, and how identical crease patterns can give entirely different feelings when displayed in different ways. Each of the patterns was used to create the pieces that follow it, designed in the program Inkscape and scored with a laser cutter to get the form on the paper.

Learn the basics of soldering by building a color changing light for your bike spoke. Participants will be given a circuit board and walked through the process of soldering through-hole (bigger and easy to solder) components to that board.

During the activity we will discuss each component and their role in making the device function.

Each participant will leave with one finished bike light board. The bike light color can be customized by configuring switches on the board or using a tilt switch to make the color dependent on the device orientation.
