Tinkering with Science

Tinker: To repair, adjust, or work with something in an unskilled or experimental manner.

Although described as ‘unskilled’, tinkering can provide kids with some very valuable skills—skills they can’t develop playing video games or with online classes.

Tinkering with Science provides kids with a safe environment in which they can dismantle, break apart and deconstruct a variety of modern objects such as printers and scanners. They will:

  • Learn how to use everyday tools
  • Learn about the different components inside modern equipment
  • Make use of these individual components
  • Build something new from all the parts, possibly artistic or Rube Goldberg like
