Tinkering School

come make amazing things with us

Break Camps

When school is out, Tinkering School® is open.

Big Ideas, Real Tools, No Recipes. It’s going to be big, messy and hands on. Join us as we use real tools to solve real and complex problems. Kids will walk away with great stories and a bold new understanding of the kinds of things they are capable of. Each Break Camp is different with totally new content and projects lead by our amazing staff.


Week Long Day Camp

  • President's Week Camp Tuesday - Friday 21 February - 24 February 2017

  • Spring Break Camp Monday - Friday 27 - 31 March 2017

Break Camps are just like our Summer Day Camp!  Multiple days of tinkering allows for some super creative designs to go through several iterations and the kids to really get to know every aspect of making with a team.



Currently all of our break camps happen at our 1960 Bryant St Location.
