Tink! Ding! Pling! Buzz!

The Tinkering Studio is an entrancing space, continuously whirring with ideas. Visitors are invited to think with your hands and embark on a fun journey of experimentation.

Find new ways to use familiar and unfamiliar materials, go through the trial-and-error process, and be amazed with your very own creations!

Get inspired, get stumped, get messy, get creative with our Science Educators, and see where our collaborative imagination takes us.

Tinkering Activities


Scribble Bot

Just about anyone can scribble using their hands. How about a hands-free scribbling machine? Using simple motors attached to a battery, base and markers, you can create a scribbler that produce surprising patterns!


Marble Machine

On the 13.6 m2 peg wall, you control the fate of the marbles using the provided materials like tracks, pegs, bells, etc. Explore the laws of physics like gravity and momentum by making the marbles travel the journey you have created.

Wind Table

Harness the kinetic wind energy to discover flying designs using various materials. How can you make your designs swish, sway or float with the wind?



Place the metal ball at the pinball launcher and shoot! The way you position the bells and metal blocks will determine the different types of zig-zagging patterns and the melodic journey made by the moving ball. 


Look out for the Facilitated sessions between 10.30am - 12.30pm and 2.30pm - 4.30pm daily.
