TinkrFest: GO WILD!

TinkrFest is a bi-annual event organized by Science Centre Singapore. We connect children, parents, educators and makers in a week-long celebration of the joy of learning through play, exploration and experimentation.

The theme “Go Wild!” explores the intricate interaction of animals and their environment through engaging hands-on activities, workshops and talks. This November theme coincides with the Science Centre’s new travelling exhibition Living Worlds: An Animal Planet Experience.

Collaborating with local agencies of biodiversity and conservation, TinkrFest hopes to invoke the seed of change to cultivate a caring generation to appreciate our natural world around us. Rediscover the beauty of biology through appreciating biodiversity and construct a caring attitude towards conservation!
