New Project: LED Pop-up Cards

This project combines high-tech and low-tech materials to introduce the concept of “making” (technology on your time) to primary school students.

The project has two parts. The first is “engineering” the design of a pop-up card. The second is adding light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to the design with a simple, safe, 3 –Volt battery to power them.
