Join us in the Tinkering Studio to channel your inner Leonardo da Vinci or Thomas Edison and explore a full spectrum of STEAM activities: Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics. Guests of all ages are invited to work collaboratively on daily projects and challenges that are designed to help you innovate, think critically and expand the limits of what can be created. 

Explore re-use and sustainability through material challenges with cardboard, plastic, playing cards and more. 

Create bridges, marble tracks and simple machines using recycled materials and studio supplies.

Design paper sculptures inspired by origami, kirigami, geometry, topology and abstract art.
