"Origami May Some Day Save A Life"

Robert Lang conducts his TED Talk in February 2008.

Fascinating presentation on how origami, with the use of math can lead to "real-world applications." One use was for a heart stent. Another for space telescopes. Although Lang doesn't take time for this, I see a good argument for why the arts should remain in K-12 education.
