Invitation to children to encourage curiosity, experimentation and discovery of the world through the process of multi-disciplinary Making. Teachers will be guided on setting up a tinkering space in school and activities that can potentially be implemented in the space.

The aim is to set up a Tinkering space in preschools, which can be used by children in free tinkering exploration activities as well as by teachers for facilitated activities. Exploring in the tinkering space will engage the curiosity of the child, making him wonder about the hows and the whys as well as encourages tinkering and discovery of the world.

Learning Objectives:

  • Setting up a tinkering space to allow for creative exploration
  • Using the tinkering space to facilitate activities on the following topics: Movement, Music, Art, Games and Light
  • Science, Math, Language and Art concepts that can be incorporated through activities using the tinkering space.

Workshop cost: $240/pax (w/o GST), $256.80 (with GST)*
