This workshop provides instructions for folding the star-building unit – a modification of the Sonobe module for unit origami. Geometric questions naturally arise during this process, ranging in difficulty from middle school to graduate levels. Participants will learn to fold and assemble star-building units, then explore the structure of the eight strictly convex deltahedra.
