The Paper Mechatronics project held two fun, intensive workshops in July. Teachers in the Pathfinders Summer Institute 2018 hosted by Infosys Foundation USA spent a week creating complex computer-controlled paper machines of their favorite storybook characters. And Children’s Creativity Museum in San Francisco hosted girls aged 9-12 for a day of STEAM fun, creating mechatronic birds from cardboard and mechanical parts.

Four students are spending their summer designing IKEA stores, Apple Park, and more in Energy3D, our computer-aided design (CAD) software. They’re contributing their designs to the Virtual Solar Grid website, designed by Charles Xie, to “crowdsource an unprecedented fine-grained, time-dependent, and multi-scale computational model for anyone, believer or skeptic of renewables, to figure out how much of humanity’s energy need can be realistically met by solar power interconnected through smart grids on the global scale—in the spirit of citizen science and independent of any authority.”
