From the Bay Area Mathematical Adventures website:
"Starting from just a sheet of paper, by folding, stacking, crumpling, tearing, we will explore a rich variety of sciences, from magic tricks and geometry to elasticity and the traditional Japanese art of origami. Much of the show consists of actual table-top demos, which you can try later with friends and family.
So, take a sheet of paper ...
