Spencer Magleby represents BYU at an NSF sponsored workshop on Origami Design for Integration of Self-assembling Systems for Engineering Innovation.
EFRI grant recipients, including BYU, were invited to participate in an NSF sponsored workshop on Origami Design for Integration of Self-assembling Systems for Engineering Innovation. Dr. Spencer Magleby of the CMR represented BYU at this event that was held at Florida International University in January 2014.
Each representative gave a brief presentation about their team's work. Dr. Magleby presented on on the progress and results of the BYU team's work with origami titled "Uniting Principles of Folding and Compliant Mechanisms to Create Engineering Systems with Unprecedented Performance." As a result of the workshop BYU is pursuing collaboration opportunities with several other EFRI teams.
