Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hello! My name is Nikhil, and I'm a Stanford freshman thinking of majoring in Computer Science.

I have been into origami since the fifth grade! I first learned origami through YouTube videos, and over the years I have folded probably hundreds of origami models of various difficulty levels. I am especially interested in geometric origami, and have designed a few of my own geometric origami models. I would love to get more people interested in this art form!

L7160: The Geometry of Origami in Splash Spring 2019 (May. 04 - 05, 2019)
Are you artistic and creative? Or do you perceive yourself as more of a logical thinker? Regardless, origami represents an interesting hybrid that allows you to exercise creativity and artistry while developing your logical-thinking. An ancient Japanese art, origami’s logical basis was discovered and developed by Akira Yoshizawa in the twentieth century. Today, origami is both a respected artistic tradition and a logic puzzle. In this class, we'll fold an interesting origami model and discuss how origami can be turned into a variety of fun geometric patterns like tessellations and fractals! We'll also briefly touch on the process of designing new origami models, if time permits.
