Description


Logo TinkerfestTinkerFest, powered by Science Centre Singapore and Imagin8ors, connects children, parents, educators and makers in a week-long celebration of the Joy of Learning; through play, exploration and experimentation.

The theme "Flights of Fancy" promotes the learning of science concepts through hands-on activities that are highly engaging, foster risk-taking and getting past the fear of failure. Humans invented many ways to fly: planes, helicopters, rockets, parachutes, etc. Each was born from a creator's mind and perfected again and again to achieve its goal. For our children to become the innovators of tomorrow, they must look back to inventors from past times to understand how reaching the sky developed from dream to reality!

So put on your aviator goggles, rev up your creativity engine and join one of our workshops with your child! Learn firsthand about the science behind flying; aerodynamics, motorization, gravity, etc. Develop traits such as critical thinking, optimism and curiosity that are key to becoming the creators of tomorrow.

tinkerfest

Our workshops are designed by expert educators, technologists and makers to build an early foundation of 21st Century capabilities - including critical thinking, creativity, character building and more. Each workshop covers multiple interest areas, inspires self-directed, open-ended learning and encourages children to use technology in purposeful ways.

Our workshops are best experienced using the Imagin8ors App to deepen the hands-on learning process. Access content and activities from the app prior to the workshop to build anticipation in your child and use it during the workshop for inspiration, then access hundreds of hours of activities to enjoy from home.

Join us at TinkerFest and experience hands-on, minds-on learning!

Science Centre

Science Centre Singapore, a non-formal educational institution and leading regional Science Centre, has for four decades been a custodian of creativity and innovation in science communication. Through a unique blend of engaging and entertaining exhibitions, educational programmes and events, the Centre and its partners have played a pivotal role in encouraging students and the public to ‘Be Inspired’ in the fields of
Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

Since 1977, the Centre has welcomed over 30 million visitors and inspired them with more than 1,000 exhibits spread across 14 exhibition galleries and outdoor exhibition spaces. The Centre’s group of attractions include Omni-Theatre, Snow City and KidsSTOP™.


The Tinkering Studio is an exhibition at the Centre which has been set up to promote the constructivist theory of learning which asserts that knowledge is not simply transmitted from teacher to learner, but actively constructed by the mind of the learner. The Tinkering Studio supports the construction of knowledge within the context of building personally meaningful artifacts, such as marble machines or light paintings. The activities provide opportunities for people to “think with their hands” in order to construct meaning and understanding for themselves.
