Tinkering Teachers wanted

Austin Tinkering School is seeking fun, energetic, enthusiastic, competent tinkering assistant teachers to work our summer camps from Jun. 5- July 28th, M-
F, 9-1. Pay is $15 an hour.  Email us at info@austintinkeringschool.com to apply.

Must be responsible, enjoy working with kids, have some teaching or leadership experience, be comfortable with tools and knowledgable about building and construction.

At Tinkering School, we let kids take the lead with the designs, so must be comfortable stepping out of the traditional ‘teacher’ role and collaborating with the kids, guiding them towards completion and successful projects.

This is a fun and unforgettable summer job! We build all sorts of things, from roller coasters to boats to pinball machines or giant marble mazes.

We will have some work leading up to the summer in different tinkering classes that take place at Tinkering School, so it’s a good time to train before summer starts.
