You’re invited to… iOi at Home Online Workshop – Sculpting Paper Cities!

Sculpting with paper to form exciting shapes from 2D to 3D is an imaginative way to explore and experiment with structures, form and designs in our cities and spaces. In this activity, we share the top tips and techniques on how to build and design with paper, so you can build your own unique space.

Right after this workshop, there is an opportunity to take part in an online 15 minute focus group (small group discussion). We would like to hear your thoughts on the activity you have just done and how you think it relates to science and engineering. This focus group is offered in partnership with the iOi and King’s College London, as part of a study done by Maia, a Masters student in STEM Education at King’s and one of our amazing iOi volunteers. Your feedback will help make the activities done with iOi even better!

Please contact Maia at maia.yoshida@kcl.ac.uk if you have any more questions.

For this workshop you will need:

  • Coloured Paper (this could be scrap paper, cardboard – anything you can fold!)
  • Scissors
  • Glue

Who is this for?

This is for children aged 5 – 12 years old. You can take part from home, an afterschool club or where else you might be! This workshop is also suitable for children with SEND – please just tell us what your child’s needs are before the session.

We can currently only lend equipment to families living in Newham and Lambeth. If you live in these boroughs, and don’t have the equipment, then get in touch with us at DLL@ioi.london.

You can watch an introduction to this activity on our iOi at Home website here.

What is Experimental Cities?

In this workshop we will be exploring the theme of Experimental Cities. Experimental Cities invites you to test, tinker, experiment and explore your city! We’ll take a closer look at nature and allow it to inspire us for how our cities can be designed and structured.

What is iOi at Home?

iOi at Home is all about building new skills, supporting wellbeing and helping to adapt to our rapidly changing world. We want to support children aged 5 – 12 and their parents, carers and teachers with playful learning programmes. It’s about building confidence and aspiration, particularly for those who need it most, with interactive online workshops and on demand content.
