Designing the Tinkering Experience
Wednesday–Friday, September 27–29
Montshire Museum of Science
Exhibits and programs related to making and tinkering are now important aspects of many science centers’ offerings, for good reason. Tinkering is an engaging, fun, valuable means of doing what scientists and engineers do. How can we move our tinkering and making programming and thinking to the next level? Join colleagues for a deep dive into different program models for engaging learners of all ages in engineering and problem solving through tinkering.
This workshop will be held at the Montshire Museum of Science, a regional science center on the banks of the Connecticut River in Norwich, Vermont. Sessions will include developing criteria for strong making and tinkering programs that fit your unique institution, designing collaborative learning environments, understanding strengths and challenges of different program models, sharing and practicing simple evaluation instruments, and opportunities to extend the learning through kits and outreach.
