What Happens When You Mix Robots, Kids, And Newspapers
The Brooklyn School of Inquiry's visit to the New York Times printing plant.
Our school newspaper staff visited the New York Times printing plant.
The New York Times printing plant is huge.
Workers ride around on bikes, carrying things in the baskets, because it's so big.
The paper is kept in giant rolls — 30,000 pages to roll
Each roll weighs as much as a Mini-Cooper!
The rolls are so heavy that robots help the workers move them around.
The newspaper is printed with metal plates.
The papers travel over head on a conveyor belt.
They control the machines from this control room.
We got newspapers from the future!
