Princess Engineers, Electric Dragons & Circuits
Princess Cassie & Her Electric Dragon Save the Day is a pop-up book embedded with simple circuits. It is designed to teach young girls, especially those in the "princess phase" about basic circuits and electrical components, and foster their interest in STEAM (science, tech, engineering, art & math).
Come along for an educational and entertaining adventure and help Princess Cassie restore power to her kingdom!
For this project, my thesis group, nicknamed Project Daffodil, received an Editor's Choice Award from this year's Makers Faire in San Mateo. We were also interviewed by Makezine.com.
You can also create your own DIY pop up with embedded electronics by seeing our tutorial on the Make Magazine website.
From inspiration to final design, our thesis project was based on a user-centric design process.
