Fun STEM Project: Make an Easy Pop-Up Card

I showed my son this video below on how to make an easy Pop-Up card. He watched it once and said that he “got it,” and then went off road, making two cards of his own.

Fun STEM Project: Make an Easy Pop-Up CardIt’s a fun and easy way to introduce STEM (or really this is more STEAM – Science Technology Engineering Art and Math) to kids of all ages.

To make this easy pop up card, you just need:

  • paper or card stock (we used leftover poster board from his cloud poster science project)
  • a pair of scissors

  1. What a cool project for kids. Love the expression on your son’s face. He got quite elaborate with its pop-up. Such a great STEM project.

    • Hi Patricia,
      This was right up his alley (and mine). Not complicated but creative and we happened to have everything in the house. I loved how he went crazy and made up his own design after trying it a few times. I think a smaller version would make a lovely greeting card!

    They have five locations in Boston, where they are from. They do wonderful pop cards. And really, publisher in top US publisher is looking for picture book about a girl with STEM. Maybe you family can write it, as a family project, about a girl doing pop up cards. Good luck.
