 Largest pack of playing cards: Lynn Camp students set world record

LYNN CAMP, KT -- Students in the design and engineering program at Lynn Camp High School, played a game of rummy using cards measuring 7 feet, 4 inches tall by 4 feet wide that they made from fiberboard - setting the new world record for the Largest pack of playing cards.worlds largest pack of playing cards made by Lynn camp students

  The Guinness world record for The largest pack of playing cards measured 101.6 cm x 73.6 cm (3ft 4 in x 2 ft 5 in). The cards were made by Dan Bliss (USA) and displayed in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA.

  Guinness World Records also recognized the record for the largest collection of playing cards: it belongs to Liu Fuchang (China), with 11,087 different sets of playing cards.

   The cards were so big it took two students to carry one from the deck in the middle of the gym floor to the competing hands at either end, which faced away from the person playing the other hand.

   Students in the design and engineering program at Lynn Camp, which is in Knox County near Corbin, designed the cards using computer software and wrote programs to have them machined robotically, then students in the art program painted them. 

   Arthur Canada, a technology teacher, said the project helped students learn skills with computer-aided design and programmable automation software and also in working as a team.
   In art, teacher Earl Gregory used the project to teach painting techniques.

   It's not the first time Canada has had students design and create large objects as a learning tool.

   Students built a chess set last year with pieces 10 feet tall.
  "We just try to find things that have a neat factor to them," Canada said.

   Students worked for weeks on the card project. Some worked five or six hours a day, sometimes after school, to draw and paint the 52 giant cards, Gregory said.
