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.

Recycled lanterns, DIY project

For Christmas, Halloween or any acasion, handmade lanters with cans! Its a great way o reuse and recycling metal can's thats would end in trash can..
I found this super restless idea here and i think the final result is great. 
this project needs adult supervision and I fond it to be a bit more difficult o execute then it appear.


What we need:
  • cans, sausage cans, mushrooms, peas ... in short, those who we often have around in the kitchen,
  • hammer, careful with your fingers,
  • nail, it will look better if you use a thin nail,
  • water, enough to fill up the cans,
  • dishcloth,
  • freezer, ya the one in refrigerator,
  • candles, as many as the cans;
  • indelible marker.
How to:
  1. Fill up the cans with water;
  2. Place then in the freezer;
  3. Wait about 24 hours;
  4. With the indelible marker draw the form you want to illuminate in the can, you can draw it in a piece of paper and secure it with tape to the can;
  5. Cover a table with a cloth, make sure the table is resistant;
  6. With the nail and the hammer punch some holes along the drawing lines, those must be equally spaced;
  7. Place the can in the sink, wait until you can remove the ice block;
  8. Dry the can; 
  9. Now you can paint it like they did here; 
  10. Place the candle inside.

Et voil√°!
Light effects!

Enjoy!
