Making 3D Hologram Projector: STEM for Kids

My son saw this video on The Kid Should See It and wanted to build a 3D Hologram Projector.

It looks simple enough and it certainly caught my 10-year-old son’s attention. The materials are easy to come by too. You just need:

  • CD Case that you can cut up
  • X-Acto Blade
  • A cutting board or something to cut on
  • clear tape
  • scissors

The first thing you need to do is print out this template that you will use to cut out the plastic pieces from the CD case.

Have an adult help you cut out the plastic pieces. It’s a little tricky!

Carefully tape the plastic pieces together.

Now the fun part! Place your 3D Hologram Projector on a smart phone while playing any videos from this collection  of YouTube videos or this collection of YouTube videos.

  1. It’s times like these where I wish we had a smartphone that isn’t my Dad’s work phone (which we aren’t really allowed to touch). Really cool! 😀

  2. Now this is a cool project. I can see my kids having a blast making one of these bad boys. Thanks for the idea!
