Paper Engineering

We probably don’t think of paper as a building material. A paper, of course, cannot hold weight, but what happens when you bend or fold a piece of paper? It transforms into a strong, stable material! Designers who use paper as a building material are called paper engineers. With this box we explore building with paper as well as geometry and fractals!

Amma Tell Me About Krishna

Written by Bhakti Mathur, Illustrated by Maulshree Somani

The festival of Janamashtmi
Celebrates the birth of Krishna,
An avatar of Lord Vishnu,
Born to rid the world of evil Kansa.

Across the flooded river Yamuna.
Helped by a snake called Shesh Naag,
His arrival at the home of Nand and Yashodha!
