FOLDING PAPERS

After reading about the history of THE STRUCTURE OF GLUCOSE, I thought of constructing all 3‑D models. so I started making the first model – “open chain structure of Glucose” from refills and beads. It was looking nice but it was again looking like a 2‑D model. So I gave off this idea.

Then one day when I started reading about tessellations on MATHIGON, I also learned that we can make 3‑D models by connecting similar or different types of regular polygons using origami.

As I read it I recalled the book, which my papa had bought. A book of origami by ravindra keskar. I used to make models from it. So I began to search the book and finally found it.

As I flipped its pages, I recalled old memories when I used to make things with my sister. It’s really fascinating that even without scissors and glue you can make so many beautiful and complex structures. Then I tried to make some models by following the instructions written in it.

My Origami Models

I and my sister loved to make the flower‑model. But off‑course I have forgotten all this so it took some time to re‑learn it.

Soon I will start making paper models of polyhedra and molecules. Can’t wait!
