Our resident artist began working at the Science Center as a contractor in 2008, and has been gracing the building with his artwork since 2010. Each of Doug’s works incorporates his passion for nature and talent for recycled mediums.

There is one universal truth about 3D printing and that is: IT-IS-COOL.

The team of Makers behind the newest 3D printing technology, DeltaMaker, have taken this truth to all a whole new level and you can see it at Orlando Mini Maker Faire.

This Kickstarter-funded project is the brainchild of four individuals, each with their own unique engineering background. It is with the thoughtful skill of a mechanical engineer, electrical engineer, software engineer and aerospace engineer that this elegant personal printer came to be. All together, this team has experience in engineering, product design and development, consulting, business management, and entrepreneurship. They also have extensive experience professionally in their fields working for such companies as Lockheed Martin, IBM, Raytheon and FLIR Systems.

There’s a new addition to Orlando Science Center’s KidsTown exhibit hall!

Imagination Playground, an innovative playspace concept by Rockwell Group, is a portable playground made of lightweight foam pieces. Loose parts of unique shapes and sizes foster creativity and design, allowing children to build anything they might imagine. Children of all ages can enjoy creating countless settings and scenarios, animals, robots and more with the kid-friendly, eco-friendly foam.

Through Imagination Playground, deep learning concepts such as critical thinking and problem solving are developed and strengthened. Little ones have fun while also "building" on skills that will give them a competitive advantage in school and one day, a career. As your child imagines, designs and creates, they develop an understanding of balance and other STEM concepts.
