Land ahoy! Young engineers launch giant origami paper boat
Pupils from school Tottenham UTC helped to launch a giant-sized origami boat on Southwark Boating Lake in South London to mark the 50 day countdown The Big Bang Fair, which promotes careers in STEM subjects to young people.
The boat, capable of carrying an adult safely, was 3.3 metres (almost 11 foot) tall and 3.6 metres (almost 12 foot) long. Almost 100 metres of paper were used to make the boat – that’s the length of a football field. Find out more at www.thebigbangfair.co.uk/origamiboat
