Tinker Fest

 

Dates:  27 Nov - 3 Dec 2017
Timings: 10am - 6pm
Location: The Tinkering Studio (Hall E), Science Centre Singapore

 
Tinker Fest, powered by Science Centre Singapore and Imagin8ors connects children, parents, educators and makers in a week-long celebration of the Joy of Learning - through play, exploration and experimentation.

The theme "Flights of Fancy" promotes the learning of science concepts through hands-on activities that are highly engaging, foster risk-taking and getting past the fear of failure. Humans invented many ways to fly: planes, helicopters, rockets, parachutes, etc. Each was born from a creator's mind and perfected again and again to achieve its goal.

For our children to become the innovators of tomorrow, they must look back to inventors from past times to understand how reaching the sky developed from dream to reality!

So put on your aviator goggles, rev up your creativity engine and join one of our workshops with your child! Learn first hand about the science behind flying; aerodynamics, motorization, gravity, etc. Develop traits such as critical thinking, optimism and curiosity that are key to becoming the creators of tomorrow.

Register for the workshops below.
