|Inspired by an architect's visit to a 4th grade classroom, this elementary school curriculum develops spatial reasoning and visuospatial thinking through 2-D to 3-D transformation challenges in origami and pop-up paper engineering. Collaboration with the Tufts University Spatial Cognition Laboratory and support from an Institute for Education Sciences (IES) grant has led to adoption of the Think3d! curriculum in schools in New York, New Hampshire, and Vermont.|
