* BROADCAST This class will be presented to students in a classroom at the convention site and simultaneously broadcast to an off-site audience on the web. In 2012 the National Science Foundation awarded several large, 4-year grants to various research groups across the country in order to study origami. Specifically, these groups were charged to explore self-folding mechanisms and their applications in everything from deployment of structures in outer space to biomedical applications. In this presentation and discussion, Tom Hull will describe some of the new results and developments that have emerged from these grants, in particular the one he's been working on with physicists from Cornell University and the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, as well as origami math-science experts like Robert Lang, Tomohiro Tachi, Erik Demaine, Jeannine Mosely, and others.
