In Tinkering, students explore materials, supplies, tools and concepts in an open-ended, adult-guided way. Past Tinkering sessions have involved making custom Minecraft controllers with Makey Makey, exploring linkage mechanisms with cardboard and brads, testing out paper circuits to make light-up cards and pictures, taking apart consumer electronics and toys to see what’s inside, and a multi-week construction of an elaborate Rube Goldberg device.┬áTinkering is where we try out new ideas as a group, and encourage one another as we try to get our thing to work.

Much of what we do in Tinkering is fine-motor intensive. Students should be able to properly use scissors well before signing up for Tinkering, in order to prevent a great deal of frustration for them on our projects.

Tinkering is very popular, and class size is limited. If this Tinkering session fills, another may be added – please let us know if you’re interested in a different date or time!

Share and discuss favorite poems and enjoy a snack! Students meet for weekly teatime with Desiree, as presented by Juile of Bravewriter. Poetry is enjoyed as it was meant to be, in a relaxed environment that encourages reading aloud and lively discussion. Students will take turns providing teatime treats for the class, and IfSpace will happily provide the tea and china.
