About

Austin Tinkering School is a place where kids use real tools and real materials to build, create, and learn. Adults serve as collaborators rather than teachers for maximum engagement, interest, enthusiasm, and enjoyment.

The original Tinkering School is in California and was founded by Gever Tulley, who we were thrilled to welcome to Austin in March, 2010 for a whirlwind weekend of workshops, talks, and dinner table conversations in which he gave us his blessing to use the Tinkering School name here in Austin.

For more about Gever Tulley and Tinkering School check out this webcomic or his great TED talk, 5 Dangerous Things (you should let your children do).
