What our members say...
"My family and I love TinkerLab Schoolhouse. The projects are perfect for engaging and inspiring our kids. We’ve loved making playdough, painting stuffed animals, and creating frozen worlds. This is a wonderful creators’ space, with fantastic ideas, warm encouragement, and inspiring playlists. TinkerLab Schoolhouse has helped our kids stay positive through lockdown."
"Not only do we have long-lasting beautiful artwork, we also have deeper connection and memories. Join Schoolhouse: you can participate as little/much as you like, or you can access the materials in a linear or non-linear way. It's like an incredible choose-your-own-learning adventure that is thoughtfully prepared and embedded in learning theory that makes it both accessible and meaningful."
Curiosity, discovery, & confidence
When children take creative risks, they grow and learn through play.
Children experience that mistakes are okay and often lead to fresh ideas.
Learning is purposeful and children grow using limited and/or basic materials, encouraging invention and imagination.
Children are engaged because they get to follow their interests and curiosities.
Curiosity and wonder are sparked with open-ended projects.
If it suits them, families are creating together with their child which deepens connection and strengthens relationships.
The time commitment is low but, if you have extra time, there's room to extend projects for hours.
In TinkerLab, your child will:
test, play, and explore.
follow curiosities, questions, and interests.
experiment with materials and ideas.
adapt as they make discoveries and find new solutions.
invent new ways to solve challenges.
