Students Create Unique Pop-Up Cards


June 26, 2014

Some students in Charlottesville are creating works of art by combining technology and design.

Ten and 11-year-old students have been creating pop-up cards featuring LED lights. The cards were designed on computers before being printed. The circuitry was then inserted into the cards.

A group of students and teachers at Walker Upper Elementary School judged the entries. The goal of the project is to inspire creativity.

“What we know from the research is that we can start engaging those kids in the reasoning, in the team work and collaboration skills, and in integrating technologies in new and different ways at a younger and younger age,” said Paula Dickinson

The project is part of the school’s STEM - science, technology, engineering, and mathematics - program.
