THE FRANCHISES. LET’S GET TO THE SCIENCE OF THIS. AND AN ACTIVITY TO ENHANCE THE CHILD’S ARTISTICITY. MIEP HOW KIDS CAN TAKE OBJECTS AROUND THE HOME TO MAKE CREATIVE PRINTS. >> HELLO EVERYONE. WELCOME TO THE SCIENCE OF IT HERE AT THE ORLANDO SCIENCE CENTER. REPORTER: I’M WITH JESS TODAY. WHAT ARE WE TALKING ABOUT? >> TODAY WE’RE GOING TO BE CREATORS AND MAKE A PRINT AND A PRINT USING A PRINT WE MAKE TOGETHER — A PRINT WE MAKE TOGETHER. REPORTER: WHAT IS A MAKER? >> THE MANUFACTURER IS A CREATIVE PROBLEM SOLVER, AN INNOVATOR. SO SOMEONE WHO DOES SOMETHING THAT WE CAN PHYSICALLY USE AND HAVE AN END RESULT. OR DO SOMETHING TO RESOLVE A PROBLEM OR CRISIS. SO IT’S REALLY FUN TO INCORPORATE STEM CONCEPTS WITH THIS. REPORTER: TELL ME ABOUT THE MATERIALS WE HAVE HERE TODAY. >> TODAY WE’RE GOING TO USE A WOODEN CUBE THAT I HAD. AND THEN WE HAVE SOME FOAM STICKERS IN DIFFERENT SHAPES. I ALSO ATTACHED A PIECE OF BABLON TO IT. SO THEY ARE ALL ALREADY ATTACHED TO OUR WOODEN CUBE. BUT I ALSO HAVE SOME GEAR. SO I WOULD LIKE TO USE THE NOTES BECAUSE THEN WE CAN GO THE ROBOT ROUTE WITH OUR SEAL. SO I GUESS WE CAN CONNECT THE NOTES TOGETHER AND THEN PRACTICE USING OUR PRINT. SO I HAVE THESE BLUE DOTS HERE THAT WE CAN USE TO ATTACH OUR FACILITY. REPORTER: I LOVE THESE. >> THE BLUE DOTS ARE AWESOME. YOU CAN USE THEM TO ATTACH QUITE LITTLE MATERIALS TO SOMETHING. SOMETHING MAY NOT BE EVEN CLOSE TO STICKY HERE. SO WE’RE GOING TO GO AHEAD AND STICK THIS ONTO OUR WOODEN BASE. GOOD JOB. JUST LIKE THAT. NOW WE CAN GO AHEAD AND START PLAYING WITH OUR SEAL. IT’S REALLY FUN TO BUILD YOUR PRINT AND THERE ARE SO MANY DIFFERENT WAYS YOU CAN DO THIS THAT I’M GOING TO TALK ABOUT AS WE PLAY A BIT WITH IT. WE WILL BE USING AN INK PAD AND WITH THE INK PAD WE HAVE TO PRESS VERY HARD FOR OUR PRINT TO SHOW. YOU CAN USE PAINT AT HOME, BUT MAKE SURE YOU KNOW HOW TO USE A THIN COAT OF PAINT. REPORTER: IF YOU USE TOO MUCH PAINT, YOU WILL START TO MAKE A FIVE. >> WE CAN PRESS DOWN WHATEVER YOU WANT TO DO FIRST. MAKE SURE TO CLICK — THERE YOU ARE. AND THEN WE CAN GO AHEAD AND PRESS. VERY GOOD JOB. REPORTER: IT DID VERY WELL. >> I LIKE USING NOTES AND FORMS BECAUSE YOU CAN GO THE ROBOT ROUTE AND IT OPENS A FUN LIE DIARY LIKE WHAT IS YOUR ROBOT DOING OR CAN YOUR ROBOT HELP SOLVE A PROBLEM? SO IT OPENS UP A REALLY FUN DIALOGUE. BUT YOU DON’T HAVE TO DO A ROBOT. OF COURSE YOU CAN DO WHATEVER YOU WANT. OH. REPORTER: I LIKE THIS. >> I’M GOING TO PRACTICE A BIT WITH BUBBLE WRAP. REPORTER: HOW’S THE BUBBLE PACK? >> YOU PUSH IT JUST LIKE YOU WOULD OTHERS AND IT MAKES A REALLY GREAT IMPRESSION. IT’S REALLY FUN TO PLAY WITH THE TEXTURE TOO. I LIKE TO USE THE CARDBOARD IF IT’S RIB OR SOMETHING TO GIVE IT A REALLY COOL TEXTURE BECAUSE THAT’S ANOTHER REALLY FUN TALKING POINT. REPORTER: AND A LOT OF EXPERIMENTATION. DIFFERENT MATERIALS AND TRY TO SEE HOW THEY LOOK ON PAPER. >> IF YOU DON’T HAVE THESE WOODEN BLOCKS, YOU CAN USE SO MANY OTHER REALLY FUN MATERIALS AT HOME. SO SOMETHING SIMPLE, BOTTLE CAPS. YOU CAN USE BOTTLE CAPS AND YOU CAN PLACE ALL THE MATERIALS WE PUT ON THE BOTTLE CAP. YOU CAN USE SOMETHING LIKE A CORK IF YOU HAVE CORKS AROUND. YOU CAN USE THIS AS YOUR PRINT. THERE ARE LOTS OF REALLY FUN, EASY AND SIMPLE WAYS TO CREATE YOUR OWN STAMP AT HOME. AND THEN MAKE A PRINT USING THE PRINT THAT YOU ACTUALLY JUST MADE WITH YOUR HANDS. REPORTER: IF PEOPLE WANT MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE TYPES OF ACTIVITIES THEY CAN DO AT HOME, WHERE CAN THEY FIND IT? >> OSC.ORG, TO OUR BLOG OR YOU CAN COME TO THE SCIENCE CENTER AND ENJOY OUR PROGRAMMING HERE THAT WE OFFER EVERY DAY. REPORTER: JESS, THANK YOU SO MUCH AND THANK YOU FOR JOINING THE SCIENCE OF THIS.
