Inspired by the Between the Folds documentary from PBS, we survey a wide variety of state of the art technologies which are possible because of origami. Throughout this thesis, readers will learn about the history of origami, it’s place in mathematics, and it’s potentially surprising applications in medicine, science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM). We make the case that there are great opportunities to use origami to supplement various aspects of STEAM topics in the early childhood, elementary and middle school curriculums. In addition, we provide sample origami applications for use in the kindergarten through eighth grade classroom which provide fun hands-on learning experiences and could inspire future scientists, mathematicians, doctors, engineers, and/or artists.
