More about Engineering with Paper

The EWP approach is simple.  You can use just paper, tape and scissors to make amazing projects. Our approach encourages you to start by learning an “alphabet’ of three-dimensional shapes and then use those in various combinations to make amazing projects.  It is perfect for almost any engineering challenge.  Engineering with Paper is a series of downloadable packets that model some projects and show you how to make your own. When students know how to build foundational shapes they can do so much more with their creativity.

Whether you are prototyping an idea or building a finished product, Engineering with Paper provides simple instructions and inspiration for building a variety of projects.  Make a catapult, Ferris wheel, car, habitat, parachute, maze, roller coaster and so much more with just paper tape and scissors.  Visit the website or Instagram account to see all the possibilities.
