Newspaper editor and fake-photo studio for new science center

In the „Texterschmiede“ of experimenta Heilbronn visitors can put their journalistic talents to test.

The experimenta Heilbronn is the largest science center in southern Germany. Experience, discover and recognize: this is the motto of the new science center. Here science and technology can be experienced at first hand. 7,500 square meters with four themed worlds provide the opportunity to gain insights into science and technology by making experiments.

The main idea of the experimenta is to deal with individual skills. In the experimenta, visitors can learn to find their own, sometimes hidden talents.

And therefore the new science center offers a special feature among the exhibition: the so-called “talent factories”. In the “car-“,”robot-” the “film-” and the „text factory“ different topics of the exhibition are actively adopted.

scienceintermedia developed the text factory: a fully equipped children’s editorial office with five workstations and green screen photo studio.

Under the slogan “Your headline, your photo, your newspaper!“ youngsters and young at hearts of all ages can play the role of chief editor. Here they can edit the major newspapers of their country, their own personal headlines and make themselves the main subject of the story – with their own portrait on the front page.
In just a few simple steps the visitor can create his or her very own high quality newspaper which can be printed in large format. The newspaper production starts with an exclusive photo shoot from within the green screen studio, where the visitor can be pictured in different digital scenery.

Since it’sgrand opening in November 2009 about 300,000 visitors played with their talents in the experimenta. Further information can be found at www.
