Grace Hopper Queen of Code Paper Doll - Printable Toy

Instant download

Description

Grace Hopper was a computing genius, a scientist, a glass-ceiling breaker, a feminist, and an all-around badass. With this little paper mascot on your desk, you will be imbued with her indomitable spirit and never write a bad line of code again.

In the 1940s, Hopper found the first computer bug (which was an actual bug – a moth that got caught in a circuit relay). In the 1950s, she invented compiled programming languages, one of which was COBOL, and is still used today. She was on ‘60 Minutes’ and David Letterman.

Grace Hopper was one of the pioneers and leading architects of the modern computing era. Her energy and innovations have shaped the future of programming and inspired a generation to think critically about the cost of their “nanoseconds”.
Owing to the breadth of her accomplishments and her naval rank, the U.S. Navy destroyer USS Hopper (DDG-70) was named for her, as was the Cray XE6 “Hopper” supercomputer at NERSC.

She was brilliant and funny and had a beautiful vision of the future of computing. Make your own personal historical figure and make her do whatever you want. You print, color, and fold, and she's ready to supervise your development in about fifteen minutes. No special material or skill is needed. Buy once, and make many. Make a conga line if you want. Seriously addictive low-cost, low-tech entertainment.

GET IT NOW! Immediate gratification! Your digital download will include the assembly instructions, a sheet of tips and play ideas, plus the pattern. All the files are PDFs.

MAKE HER IN <15 MINUTES! The instructions are dead simple. All you do is print, color, cut and assemble. Once you have made one, making more is super easy. Reprint and make an army.

LARGE OR SMALL! The pattern is totally scalable and complete, so you will have everything on one sheet, whether is a4, 8.5x11, or 5x7. Mix up the sizes to make a crowd of Abes. Enough to fill up a convention hall.

MIX AND MATCH! One of the great things about this evolved paper doll design is that the head, body and legs are all separate pieces. So you can totally mix and match body parts with other Paper People sets.

MUTATIONS ARE EASY! Now you can live out your dream of being an evil-genius/mad-scientist in a secret underground laboratory. You can embellish the pattern, and create some monsters with antlers, wings, or tentacles.

FUN FOR ALL AGES! While kids love cutting and building the figures, adults appreciate the creative possibilities. The instructions are straight-forward and include "Pro-Tips" for improving your papercraft. A sheet of play ideas makes this an ideal activity for rainy days.

These paper dolls take up very little space. Keep an envelope of cut out body parts in your bag. Break them out at restaurants for the kids to play with while they are waiting for food to be served.

In 2012, I developed a new approach to paper dolls, called Paper People. It was a immediate sensation and adopted by hundreds of art teachers and home schoolers world wide. Like those original toys, all my PaperTown Toys are easy to make, and easy to customize.

PaperTown Toys are a charming, low tech way to amuse yourself during your next natural disaster, power outage or zombie apocalypse. They may also work to keep small children quietly entertained during family visits this holiday season.

PaperTown Toys are easy to make and customize. You can quickly put together a complete family or army. You can your child can make monsters and fight them in the arena of your coffee table. Or you can create a race of enlightened alien cats or robot cats and build a new utopia. You can make characters to star in your next video production.
