School Visits Inspire Student Pop-Ups

One of the great pleasures of my vocation are the opportunities to visit schools across Texas, introducing new generations to the magic of paper engineering. As part of the presentation I show the students how they can begin to build skills in creating their own pops. Afterward, librarians and teachers sometimes share with me the results of this new found passion in these students. For instance, Abby McGown at Hamilton Elementary shared this pop up with me that she created following my recent visit there. Thank you, Abby! Nice job! Glad you enjoyed the visit too! (Click on photo to see it enlarged). I also plan to post images of other pop-ups created by students from time to time, so maybe you will see YOUR work posted here sometime!
