Corrugated cardboard is a light, sturdy, recyclable and inexpensive construction medium. It can be used for quick prototyping of 3D objects, as well as for more fun projects, such as building robot costumes or action figure playsets. Best of all, this material is brought to your door with each purchase of new gadgets, furniture, and appliances.

Our presentation will demonstrate several techniques for building three-dimensional objects out of cardboard, including:
* creating sturdy infrastructure
* tips and tricks for cutting and assembly
* painting and "finishing" your piece
* safely attaching simple electronic components, such as EL Wire, LED's, and sound output
