Tinkering 101 Workshop

Are you asking yourself ‘what is tinkering’ or ‘how do I start tinkering in my classroom’? Then this is the workshop for you! Tinkering studios and makerspaces are growing in popularity among schools, museums, and libraries. But what is tinkering and making? Does this approach to learning really belong in schools? If it does, then what are the best practices for implementing tinkering in a classroom setting? As the leading resource for student based tinkering in NWA, the Scott Family Amazeum will share insights and strategies including opportunities to sample tinkering experiences.

Date: November 30, 2017 at 4:00-7:00pm 
Fee: $25 per person 
Location: Scott Family Amazeum, 1009 Museum Way, Bentonville AR
