Tinkering School™ at Brooklyn Apple (Park Slope)

from 50.00

Tinkering School™ is an educational program created by Gever Tully 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. A young tinkerer takes a boat out into the harbor.
It can be done bigger and bolder. When we make abstract art, we do it by dropping paint-filled balloons from the rafters in our ceilings onto a bed of nails or laying down a 10ft by 30ft piece of photo scrym and dancing on it. When we build, we create 10 feet of rollercoaster track with a self-aligning cart. Every week is different and each session is new. We can promise this: we make big art, we build big things and we go amazing places.
The program starts at the end of the school day and goes to 6pm. Hours are can be customized to meet your needs. 1,2,3 and 4-day options available.
