Virtual TinkerTime

While TinkerSpace is closed due to the pandemic, we are pleased to offer Virtual TinkerTime through Zoom several times a week.

These TinkerTime activities are not intended to teach a complicated technique or give step-by-step directions. They are a time to get together, share ideas, and make something.

 

Ongoing Classes

All classes are temporarily suspended! Be sure to join our email list to be kept up to date on offerings over the next several weeks.

Tinker Time with an Engineering Focus - Learn about electronics, simple machines, and other technology to use in your creativity pack.
TinkerTime with an Art Focus - Explore color theory and design principles.
Coding with LEGO Robotics - Use the LEGO EV3 robot to learn programming concepts.
Math Circle -- Join a group of mathematical-minded peers to explore logic puzzles and mathematical problem solving.
Stop-Motion Animation -- Explore stop-motion techniques to add depth and emotion to your movie-making.
Saturday STEAM --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 support 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.
