Young Maker Workshop: Cardboard Automata says
The Orlando Science Center’s Young Maker Workshop helps hone little maker skills! This month we are creating cardboard automatas, Valentine-style!

This is a really fun Maker activity that you can try at home! Use this project to explore simple machines, specifically wheels and axles. Use your critical thinking skills and creativity to make your project move.

This Maker project is a good introduction to the variety of mechanical elements like cams, levers and linkages that are used in many different applications in the real world.

There will be three workshops on Saturday and Sunday in Dr. Dare’s Lab inside of Our Planet Our Universe on Level 4. Space is limited so it is first come, first serve.

Workshops run for roughly 45 minutes and begin at:
• 11:30 a.m.
• 1:30 p.m.
• 3:00 p.m.


Experience the Young Maker Workshop with admission to Orlando Science Center which is $19.95 for adults, $17.95 for seniors and students, and $13.95 for youth (ages 3 – 11). Tickets include access to all four floors of exhibits, traveling exhibits The Wizard of Oz and Hands-On Harley-Davidson, giant screen and 3-D educational films, one Hollywood feature-length film, and live programming.

*Please note, tickets can be pre-purchased online at or at the door.
