We will progress into more advanced folding and modular origami -- easy to learn units that combine for a variety of geometric solids -- tetrahedra, cubes, stellated octahedron: Geometry you can brag about. Origami is fun to make and even more fun to show off to friends and family. But then what do you do with it?
