Connecting children, parents, educators and makers, Tinkerfest is a week-long celebration of the joys of learning through play, exploration and experimentation.
Based on the theme, “Nurturing 21 Century Learners”, the festival seeks to highlight the foundation that children need to build from an early age that will help them succeed in a fast-changing, technology driven world.
Parents and children from ages three and up can join in for a wide range of activities (walk-ins) and workshops (pre-registration needed) at the Science Centre’s Tinkering Studio.
