Tinkering School for Educators

 3-Day Workshop and Seminar

Tinkering School for Educators is a three-day professional development experience for any educator eager to bring open-ended, hands-on problem-solving to their classroom -- or their entire school. You will leave with strategies to create hands-on learning experiences that will get your kids collaborating, asking questions, and solving problems in a whole new way -- no previous experience with tools required.

Join the Tinkering School staff for a three-day weekend of sharing ideas, meeting new friends and, of course, building!
