H2Origami was inspired from a childhood experience. We were finishing PE class, drenched in sweat, dehydrated. Most of the class did not have a water vessel. Our teacher encouraged us to be creative and fold an origami paper cup to get some water from the school sink. A few students who knew how to fold one started teaching the other kids. Soon, everyone was folding their own origami cups and getting a drink of water.
This memory from my elementary school came to me when I was working on this project. And I thought of the possibility of teaching people how to fold their own paper cup.
