The benefit of Origami
is being proven especially in the area of math, science, art, creativity
and logic thinking. Indeed, Japanese astrophysicist Koryo
Miura created folding style that allows each section to be flat when
folded and full space when open. It has been used for Space Flyer unit
satellite and influenced many developmnet of other materials to be
packed into a compact space and unflod in one continuous motion. It is
also a popular folding of a single large map into a tiny paper. It is

mind, you can explore 3D models development. There are more than one
solution to build the same model.
It has been proven as an
effective channel to boost academic studies, problem solving, memory
empowerment and cognitive development. Working with others through paper folding is great for
bonding as well. Do them with friends, colleagues, family or making
