Look Inside A Printer – It’s Pretty Cool!

Look inside a printer - it's pretty cool! Watch us open up a printer and find out what's in there. Great STEM activity, fab science and engineering.

It’s so long since we shared a Look Inside project with you. We’ve previously looked inside a Hudl Tablet and an Xbox and it is a really interesting and fun activity.

We have learned a lot about using tools, and about how things are put together and how they work. We just think it’s cool to see all of the electrical and mechanical parts, and the circuit boards too.

Next time, we’d really like to smash something up properly, but this time our Dad thought it would be too dangerous and messy, as the plastic of the printer might shatter and cause an injury to our animals which we wouldn’t want to do. We would need to do it more safely, but we hopefully will be allowed to do it some other time.

One day we hope to look in some skips at things which other people are throwing away, and open them up to show you all what is inside. We already have a few ideas, but we’d love to hear what you think it would be interesting to look inside of.

Enjoy our video, it was fun to make!

  1. What a great idea to look inside things to see how they’re made – I need to show my kids your video as they really enjoy it! Thanks for sharing

    1. Thanks, hope they like it. Also hope they don’t start taking things apart in your home!!

  2. Wow! Who knew! Great idea to look inside something.

    1. Thanks, the boys really enjoy doing this sort of thing!

  3. My husband often takes things apart to try and fix them – it’s really cool to see what’s inside. Sarah #FabFridayPost

    1. My kids think so too (although not much fixing goes on!)

  4. […] We have since made more ‘homework help’ posts which you may also find useful, including how to make and Anglo-Saxon House model, and coming soon, Toby will show you how to make a Mayan Temple. We also enjoy a good ‘STEM’ session, and like to look inside things, including an Xbox, a tablet computer and a printer! […]

  5. What a brilliant idea, this is fascinating. We take these things for granted – great to have a peak at how they work. Thanks so much for sharing with us at #TweensTeensBeyond

    1. Thank you Sharon – it’s nice to see children finding things out for themselves, isn’t it?
