Age 5, Age 6, Age 7


8 weeks

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.

This special tinkering course is tailored for a younger audience including children who are still developing their fine-motor skills.
