Students attending the "Design it, Build it, Use it: Discover Origami and Engineering" event hosted by Penn State engineering students built and tested miniature sailboats. The event offered students a hands-on opportunity to learn how art and engineering come together in design and problem solving. "At an age where they absorb everything, this is teaching them to combine two different and unique learning tools to create one thing and use both sides of their brain," said Rebecca Strzelec, professor of visual arts at Penn State-Altoona, who helped lead the event.
