Lectures and Workshops

I give a fair number of lectures per year on the connections between origami, math, science, and its ties and applications to technology, speaking to groups ranging from college students to design and animation teams at companies. A lecture I gave at the TED conference is available online here. To discuss a possible lecture or workshop at your venue, contact me. See just upcoming lectures here.
