Tinkering Parties guide participants through a design challenge, themed build, or open studio sculpture play using tools, lumber, and upcycled materials. This workshop provides tool training and workshop access up to a maximum of 15 participating children.
The party starts with a short tools training on safely using clamps, drills and hand saws, then introduces a theme or design challenge for the kids to build individually or in small groups. The program ends with a presentation of the various creations for you to take home, send home with the participants individually, or leave at reDiscover to break down and reuse. For all Tinkering programs, reDiscover Center provides a 1:5 facilitator to participant ratio to ensure safety, which can include a mix of reDiscover staff and volunteers.
