We are excited to partner with Science Center Singapore to bring you Tinker Fest, a week long celebration of the joy of learning through play, exploration and experimentation. The theme of the festival is “Nurturing 21st Century Learners” and the how tinkering enables that.
We arranged a sneak peek to the festival on Aug 26th, and invited a few special guests to interact with the Tinkering Studio and Imagin8ors teams. It was a stimulating experience tinkering with our special guests. It was heartening to see everyone roll up their sleeves and let the joy of learning flow seamlessly.
They viewed the Imagin8ors challenges on offer and worked their way through it, learning just the way the children would at the Tinker Fest!
Here’s Weiling Ang from One Maker Group making paper helicopters and balloons and landing them safely, testing out their flight-worthiness on the wind table!
Here’s Sonal from Urbandesis trying out the Bouncing Marble challenge at the Sneak Peek session!
We have lots of all day activities and challenges for you and your child to tinker with! Join us also for 5 exciting workshops to take a deeper dive. Click on the image to go to our event brite page.
We also revealed the beta version of the Imagin8ors app that we are working on with Tinkering Studio and other partners. The app will help take a culture of tinkering to homes and schools, giving parents lots of resources and ideas to inspire the joy of learning in children! Watch this space for more details…
At Tinker Fest, we invite children, parents, educators, makers and artists to experience how tinkering can help build an early foundation of these 21st century capabilities. Join the dialogue by participating in the parent and educator panel sessions.
Here’s what Natalya Twohill, CEO of Kiddet had to say about the parent panel session – ‘We are very excited for the parent panel sessions. Its important for us and Kiddet as well to find out just what parents are thinking about. I think, we are that stage in education where parents are looking beyond the classroom, beyond the traditional tuition methods for teaching their kids new skills and we are excited to see what TinkerFest does and the projects that the kids are going to be doing here and we will definitely be back!”.
