Science, Math, and Origami

This is just a few articles I stumbled across in surfing.  They are not the newest out there and I’m sure you’ve read the article about origami(including Hull, Lang, and Kamiya), but you may find them interesting if you havn’t seen them. (this has a cute little cartoon)

Easy modular sites for platonic solids and other stuff for teachers (this has a great animated sequence folding the Crane and beyond)

This would be an amazing course to teach
