After School

Tinkering School After School focuses on the core goals of Tinkering School:

  • Becoming better teammates and friends
  • Learning from our mistakes
  • Trying harder than usual
  • Building something bigger than ourselves

For 2016 we'll be returning to once-a-week meeting days for those with busy schedules. 

Session 3 - Starts the week of September 11th and finishes the week of November 14th for a total of 9 work sessions.  

We are EXCITED to offer Tinkering for Young Tinkerers. Children ages 5 - 7 will learn to work collaboratively to tackle tinkering challenges that apply scientific concepts and skills. They will design, experiment, create, make mistakes and learn from them. This is a fun way for young tinkerers to channel their energy and enthusiasm to practice problem solving skills.  Read about and register for these sessions here:

If your Tinkerer is 8 or older check out and register for these sessions:


Recent projects include an alien transport elevator,  a galloping donkey, a living version of a Shel Silverstein poem, a vending machine (with snacks!), a Tinkering Orchestra, and a Giant Bug!  As usual with Tinkering School, the project will remain a surprise until after tool training.
