San Francisco's cable cars are an example of STEM innovation in the late nineteenth century. An infinitely-folding origami riddle card unfolds to reveal Andrew Smith Hallidie's cable car innovation as a progression of streetcars and other existing technology of the time.
This kit is perfect for integrating STEM content into units on cable cars, San Francisco and California--and a great introductory activity
to these topics.
