Tinker Fest is a celebration of the Joy of Learning through play, exploration and experimentation, brought to you by a partnership between Science Centre Singapore & Imagin8ors. Join us from Dec 10 – Dec 18, 2016 for an exciting array of all-day activities and workshops at the Tinkering Studio, Science Centre Singapore. Ideal for children ages 3 and upwards and their parents.
The theme for this edition of Tinker Fest is Spring Fling! The activities and workshops are carefully designed to facilitate deeper, hands-on and minds-on engagement, to nurture imagination & creativity, and to let children use technology purposefully to create.
Check out the activities in store:
Sticks! Straws! Paper! Wondering what you can do with these?
Make your own glider and see how fast and how far it can glide through The Tinkering Studio!
Boinngg… boingggg…! Get creative with some pipe cleaners and springs! Make your own hairbands, bracelets or other accessories that can spring front, back and sideways. Try your hand at the various challenges at the Spring Wearables station.
With just rubber bands and paper rolls, create and launch your own catapult. Ready, aim… and release!
One clothespin, two frames, and one story to tell. With colored papers and a few crafty materials, bring your story to life on a clothespin. We’re interested to know: what’s your story?
Besides the activities, we also have a series of fun and exciting workshops during the weekdays. Pre-register right here:
- Monday 12 December: Elastic Launcher
- Tuesday 13 December: Arcademia
- Wednesday 14 December: Makey-Makey
- Thursday 15 December: Wind-up Toy

Take the joy of tinkering home with the Imagin8ors App ‘invite-only’ beta:

Get access to hours of fun, active learning content – including tinkering activities – that have been carefully curated by our panel of teachers and parents.
Just by investing 10-15 minutes a day together with your child, you can nurture a joy of learning and build skills like critical thinking, creativity, character traits and tinkering.

The Tinkering Studio Channel on our app helps you and your child engage at a deeper level with the exhibits and activities at the Studio, and have access to related content that helps you to tinker and play together right at home!
Here’s what 2 of our active app users have to say:
Sara (mom of one girl): “…It enables her to actually do the stuff, to actually start making things…..I have never really seen any app like this, ever.”
Paola (mom of two boys): “The short videos are just right for their attention span… the interactive bit, like the quiz part, is something that I really like… the app is really neat.”
Join us at ‘Spring Fling’, starting tomorrow till the 18th of Dec, 2016, only at Science Centre Singapore. Get creative, collaborate, have fun – and experience the Joy of Learning and Tinkering.
