Everything is Made from Dots!? Wonders of Digital Printing Class

"There are many colors in a set of coloring pencils but there are only 4 colors of ink in a printer. Then why is it possible for the colors to be expressed in so many different patterns?" "With paint, you mix water and make pale colors and deep colors but how is it possible for a printer to make those colors?" Why don't you come join us with the entire family to learn about the science and technology which we encounter often in our daily lives? After studying, you can also experience creating your original calendar with your name on it using the large scale printer.

At the same time, there will be explanations on the diversity of organisms and the fact how industrial products which make our lives convenient are created by the resources from Earth's environment where diverse organisms live. Also, we have established a section where we will have visitors affix stickers on the "promises tree," bearing ideas on what can be done in our daily lives to protect the environment. Depending on the numbers of "promises" obtained by visitors, our plan is to provide support for the Afan Woodland in Kurohime, Nagano prefecture.
