Get Your Gears Turning in Time For TinkerFest

Get Your Gears Turning in Time For TinkerFest
Mark your calendars for the second annual TinkerFest on Saturday, June 15 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Museum of Discovery!
 What is tinkering? It's free-form experimentation with use of screwdrivers, motors, wires, glue, and more.
 

People can spend hours creating and building. Tinkering allows us to slow down and immerse ourselves in a workshop environment. Tinkerfest is an all-day celebration of building, adapting, making and creating!
