Tinkering Camp is designed to be a problem-solving experience lab and wonderland for students of all ages held at the Brooklyn Apple Academy. Students consistently try new things with access to a wood shop, kitchen, library, and musical instruments, as well as sewing, crafting, painting, and printmaking materials. Each day will consist of a morning field trip to Prospect Park, Central Library, Pier 6 or The Brooklyn Museum, followed by lunch, a mystery challenge, and open tinker time in the afternoon.
During the field trips students will be encouraged to wander and wonder; to collect ideas, found objects, and inspirations by taking notes and drawing sketches in field books they will bind themselves. In the afternoon, students will have the opportunity to work independently or to collaborate on self-directed and teacher- proscribed challenges inspired by the morning excursions. Emphasizing innovation, research, rule-bending, and game-changing, students will rise to challenges they find exciting, personally inspiring and sometimes impossible! Tinkering encourages camaraderie, teaching, listening, failure and leadership across boundaries of age, experience and ability.
Dates: April 10-14 (Monday-Friday)
Let's face it; some of us don't like math! Yet when it comes to applying for colleges, many of our desired schools request and SAT score.
If math is definitely NOT your thing but you need to take the SAT, this class is for you.
This class will spend a majority of the time focusing on understanding the highest priority mathematics for the exam. Your instructor will spend plenty of time fielding questions and providing ample amounts of examples to gain maximum comprehension.
Textbook, materials and a light snack are included in the fee.
Vacation days: 04/15
There is a wide range of Algebra I, Algebra II, and Geometry tested on the SAT, and it is tested in tricky ways. This class will cover all of the subject matter is a clear, understandable manner. A large amount of examples, both in class and for homework, will be provided.
Students taking this SAT class want a good score (600+) but they are not expecting a perfect score or near perfect score.
This class MAXIMIZES your time with the instructor as we do not give practice test during the session, which takes up an entire class (we provide the practice test to be done outside of class).
Textbooks, materials, and light snacks included with the fee.

Tinkering School® is an educational program created by Gever Tulley at Brightworks in California. Tinkering School operates from a few basic assumptions:
Kids are more capable than they know. The use of real tools to tackle real problems creates a unique atmosphere of trust and responsibility. From six-year-olds to highschoolers, we empower our tinkerers with tools, autonomy and space. Big responsibilities build competency and leave lasting memories.
The freedom to fail is essential. Every project has setbacks and often ours happen to be spectacular. If it goes right the first time, you’re just learning how to follow instructions. A failure-positive atmosphere allows children to play in the face of adversity.
Tinkering after school is designed to be a problem-solving experience lab and wonderland for students ages 6-14 held at the Brooklyn Apple Academy.

During this After-School Course, the children will gain the confidence in their ability to plan, design, and create three dimensional art, and the confidence in their inner characters to provide material for performance. Using foam, Paper-Mâché, clay, cardboard, fabric and paint, I will facilitate construction and manipulation of characters and personas from the children's' imaginations. They will script short plays by developing these characters.
The first class they will choose a real or imagined superhero, sketch plans visually and verbally, and create clay models of the heads and hands that they will then paper-mâché. In the following classes the students will produce bodies with foam or fabric. We will take turns watching and performing as groups of two are asked to improvise and interact.
Days of the week: Wednesdays- there are eleven sessions
Dates: February 8 - April 26
