Why were we teaching kids to fold some Origami cubes?  Glad you asked, it is all about the Internet of Things and many other skills that it seems nobody else is teaching them.  

I spent this past Saturday afternoon at the #HiveWaterloo event teaching kids the principles of the “Internet of Things”. Kids as young as six came by the station and had fun learning how to create some very cool Origami cubes. The more

 advanced “students” got as far as learning how to wire them so they would light up. Some of them even hinted at “knowing” how to build a computer made out of paper! People, this is the kind of stuff that we are doing at http://fabspaces.cc/ lately. A lot more in the works as the reception has been amazing: kids have a lot of fun and parents just want to know when we are coming to their school.  Any educators out there that would like to get involved in other cities?
