Members got messy on Monday with paints, flavored Play Doe, floam and silly spheres. The activities focused on stimulating children’s senses through touch, smell, sight and hearing. Sensory exploration encourages children to use scientific processes while they play, create, explore and investigate.
Be a part of our next Member Monday on Monday, February 10. The local Gymboree team will lead a class encouraging the development of cognitive, physical and social skills. This event is sure to keep you moving!
Otronicon enjoyed a VIP visit from Congressman Daniel Webster during the first day of the ninth annual technology festival at the Orlando Science Center. During his visit, Congressman Webster experienced a flight simulator courtesy of Lockheed Martin, graced the cover an EA SPORTS video game, saw a woman once restricted to a wheelchair walk again thanks to an Ekso Bionics exoskeleton and so much more. Orlando Science Center and its Otronicon partners thank Congressman Webster for joining us today. We enjoyed giving him a glimpse of the innovation that can be found right here in Central Florida.
City of Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer and Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs joined Science Center President and CEO JoAnn Newman to officially launch Otronicon v.9 at Orlando Science Center. Event included a demonstration of the Ekso Bionic Suit, which helps “test pilot” Sarah Anderson walk after losing the use of her legs in a car accident.
New partners Microsoft and Sony join the likes of Walt Disney World Resort, EA SPORTS, Florida Hospital for Children, Lockheed Martin and the University of Central Florida, plus many other technology leaders to explore Orlando’s impact on the worlds of entertainment, simulation, education, health care and more.
