Almost everything expands as it gets warmer, but did you know some metals actually contract when they are heated? Nickel Titanium shape memory actuator wire, or “Muscle Wire” has a unique ability to contract when a current is passed through it, making it perfect for art and robotics. It was even used on the NASA Sojourner rover mission to Mars in 1997. Explore the unique properties of this wire and create a circuit that will bring your origami to life. Designed for children 10-15 and their adults.
