Technique Pages provide instructions for dozens of shapes that can be used again and again to build unlimited creations. Each themed page has simple instructions that teach foundational principles of engineering and paper-based creativity.
- Folding & Cutting Guide
- Student Worksheet
- Entire library of Engineering with Paper Technique Pages:
Basic Shapes, Tracks, Trays & Boxes, Accessories, Cityscape, Furniture, Structural Components, Tubes with Brackets, Beams, Beams with Trays
Technique Pages are the core of the Engineering with Paper methodology. This approach teaches students engineering skills through versatile shapes that empower hands-on understanding of STEAM concepts.
Generate and compare multiple possible solutions to a problem based on how well each is likely to meet the criteria and constraints of the problem.
Define a simple design problem reflecting a need or a want that includes specified criteria for success and constraints on materials, time, or cost.
Plan and carry out fair tests in which variables are controlled and failure points are considered to identify aspects of a model or prototype that can be improved.
Ask questions, make observations, and gather information about a situation people want to change to define a simple problem that can be solved through the development of a new or improved object or tool.
Analyze data from tests of two objects designed to solve the same problem to compare the strengths and weaknesses of how each performs.
Develop a simple sketch, drawing, or physical model to illustrate how the shape of an object helps it function as needed to solve a given problem.
