Lets build, create, play, explore, and enjoy!
Tinkering School is a place where children are given abstract open-ended building projects and problems. Trained to use the tools required for success, they have the freedom to fail and the time to persevere. The use of real tools to tackle real problems creates a unique atmosphere of trust and responsibility. A failure-positive atmosphere allows children to play in the face of adversity. Let kids surprise themselves with the amazing things they can build.
