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.

Al A Cart Sessions

  • Thanksgiving Break  -  Monday through Wednesday 21 - 23 November

  • Winter Break - Between Christmas and New Year - Tuesday through Thursday 27 - 29 December

Join us for one, two, or all three sessions!  Al a cart sessions the best of our popular one day workshops and the in-depth design and building sessions of our week long session by creating projects that can can stand alone and build on the work completed in previous sessions.  The ebb and flow of sessions participants brings exciting collaboration each day.  

Week Long Day Camp
