Fall Classes and Workshops

This Fall, classes include Tinker Time with an Engineering Focus - Learn how to use electronics, simple machines, and other technology as a tool in your creativity pack., TinkerTime with an Art Focus - Explore color theory and design principles. Our robotics class and math circle will continue this fall and we are adding a stop-motion animation class as well as a parent participation STEAM class for our youngest tinkerers. Classes 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.

Students under the age of 8 must have a parent/guardian remain on the premises for the duration of each class. (Stand Alone Workshops that are not part of a class require parent supervision for all children under 10).  Students enrolled in multiple classes with no more than a 15-minute gap between them may stay at TinkerSpace between activities. Otherwise, students must be picked up promptly at the end of class.
