Tinkering 

Experiment, code, innovate and create!

RECOMMENDED FOR YEARS 3-7

 

Tinkering is the perfect introduction to electronics, circuits and basic coding with students given the opportunity to get hands-on and investigate how circuits work. They will also explore some solar energy, conductors, insulators and the components that can make up various kinds of circuits in this wonderfully engaging STEM/STEAM incursion. Basic coding is part of one rotation as students enjoy machines at work through team obstacle course challenges.
