‘Think3d is AWESOME!’ These were Elsie’s first words to me, unprompted, after school today. And, 30 mins later, she’s still showing off all the critters she made. She said that lots of kids kept making more and more after the session.

what's included in the think3d! box

A collaborative program, each pair of students gets their own box including:

  • Six Folders, A through F, containing the engineering design and spatial reasoning challenges.
  • Five 11”x17” diagram sheets each describing multiple ways to transform a single piece of paper into a 3-dimensional model.
  • Six 8 1/2” x 11” sheets describing the folding sequence for origami models. 
  • Three sets of pre-folded origami models for reverse engineering and 11”x17” and 3”x3” paper for student posters. 
  • Six die cut letter models for reverse paper engineering. 
  • An 11”x17” diagram sheet with a model describing applied paper engineering.
  • 2D to 3D paper engineering challenges for in-between the classroom sessions.
  • Two boxes of origami paper including 30 sheets and six colors in each box.
  • Two sets of paper engineering paper, 60 pieces in each set.

Recycle/re-use: Students transform the 2-D paper contents of the think3d! box into 3-D models.

Each purchaser will have access to the Quick Start Video tutorials for each set of spatial reasoning challenges in the Module. Click below for an example of the Quick Start Video tutorials.

Transform a flat piece of paper into a 3-dimensional model by following a sequence of diagrams to construct the flapping butterfly origami model.

 

My son had his friend Jakob over for a sleepover. There were a bunch of things that he wanted Jakob to bring…. His DS, his light saber, his comic books, and his think3d! origami paper. They had fun, played, then went to bed. In the morning, I heard the boys up early, but they were very quiet. My wife and I stayed in bed awhile, enjoying the relaxing weekend morning. Still, the boys were exceptionally quiet. No morning cartoons, no running around the house, etc. When I went downstairs, I found that the boys had been folding paper for two hours!
