Send us your questions

Some of our visitors have sent emails with interesting questions, we decided to start having a space to answer them. In this space the blog "Restless Minds" will answer all questions you send us
Send us your question for the email: Restless Minds.

Science progress affects our daily life and "to know" means you are going to chose right, because it allows you to form your own opinion on scientific everyday issues. On the other hand, having an elegant and harmonious vision of the world where we live in leads to a feeling of intellectual satisfaction.
We believe this kind of scientific day to day knowledge should be encouraged from an early age, and that's why this project was born: science, culture, knowledge, crafts for your restless mind.

Frame with yogurt recicled caps

This is fun, colorful, easy and pretty.

What we need:
  • yogurt caps, all of the same kind, we used 56,
  • thin wire,
  • pliers,
  • small drill, like a  drummel, use glue if you prefer;
  • acrylic paint;
  • varnish
  • soft brush 
  • swabs.
How to:
  1. Wash the caps;
  2. Let them dry;
  3. Place the caps on the table and see the format you want to give to your frame;
  4. Take 2 caps;
  5. Use the drill to open a small hole on each cap side wall;  
  6. Use the pliers to cut the wire (about 6cm);
  7. Fold the wire in half, like a clamp;
  8. Pass one end through the holes, pull the clamp up and tighten down with pliers; 
  9. With your fingers push wire ends down, to the opposite direction, and then again with the pliers tight it;
  10. Repeat the operation for all the caps; 
  11. You can do line by line, then link the several lines, or you can do it in spiral, like the picture shows;
  12. Before using the drill mark the spot with a pen;
  13. If you are using glue is much easier, just apply the glue and lean the caps.
  14. When you are done clean all the surface with alcohol;
  15. Let it dry;
  16. Use your imagination to paint it, we made some silly faces;
  17. Use varnish to finish the job;
  18. Use the swab to paint the eyes;

Et Voil√°!
Everyone can be an artist!
