Tinkering Activities

A new activity featured every month!

Inside the IDEA Lab there is a tinkering space, located at the front of the learning world, which features monthly activities that are open to the public and included with admission. You can stop by for a few minutes or a few hours to tinker around on a creation that’s all your own.


Crank Puppets Tinkering - Included with Admission
Every day in June, design and build your own simple machine. Learn the basics of mechanics, including gear ratios, cams and followers. Bring to life a mechanical machine that dances and twirls or jumps and shakes as you get to choreograph all your character’s moves.
