Tinkering Studio at the Exploratorium
Tinkering Studio founders Karen Wilkinson and Mike Petrich gave us a great tour of their hands-on workshop and learning center at the Exploratorium, in a field trip organized by the ReMake Education Summit team.
The Tinkering Studio is an immersive, active, creative place at the Exploratorium where museum visitors can slow down, become deeply engaged in an investigation of scientific phenomena, and make something—a piece of a collaborative chain reaction—that fully represents their ideas and aesthetic.
Karen and Mike showed some really creative ways to teach art, science and making -- and it inspired me to try some of their practices into our own maker art work and the classes we teach at Tam Makers.
