As part of Shruthik Musukula’s class at Valley Christian Junior High, he and his classmates built this foldable room for disaster preparedness. It can act like a bedroom, complete with fold-up desk and fold-down bed, and packs small for easy shipping. The key is in the hinges and triangular pieces, which allow it to collapse in on itself, like an origami fortune teller.
