Upcoming Workshops

Learn how to use electronics, simple machines, and other technology as a tool in your creativity pack. Workshops are offered in a small group setting. Parents are welcome, even encouraged to stay and help their children, however, we ask that tinkerers\' creative abilities be respected and that they are allowed to make their projects their own.

Workshop participants under the age of 10 must have a parent/guardian remain on the premises for the duration of the workshop.  Children age 10 - 13 may be signed in and out of the workshop by a parent/guardian (if the parent/guardian is not remaining on the premises) and must be picked up within 5 minutes of the stated ending time of the workshop. Participants age 14 - 16 may arrive and depart from the workshop without parent/guardian supervision as long as a current waiver is on file with TinkerSpace for the participant.
