VALPARAISO — People can learn about the art of origami at 7 p.m. April 17 in the meeting room at Valparaiso Public Library, 103 Jefferson St. Leslie Cefali will give the free PowerPoint presentation on recent origami-inspired technology and how they are benefiting and improving lives.
Cefali teaches origami at many venues and regularly attends national origami conventions each year. She has spent the last 10 years researching the impact of origami in the fields of STEM/STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math).
The presentation is geared towards parents, educators and interested adults. This is not an origami folding class. The Valparaiso Public Library regularly offers free origami classes for participants in grades 4 though adulthood. These classes meet the second and fourth Tuesday of each month (March 2019 excluded) at 4 p.m. in the meeting room. Classes are free, but space is limited, so registration is recommended. A different origami model is taught in each class session. To register for the PowerPoint Presentation (not required) or classes (required), visit www.pcpls.com and click on the events calendar, or register at the circulation desk. Each session requires a separate registration.
