Tinkering School is a place where children are given abstract open-ended building projects and problems. Trained to use the tools required for success, they have the freedom to fail and the time to persevere.
A failure-positive atmosphere allows children to play in the face of adversity.
The use of real tools to tackle real problems creates a unique atmosphere of trust and responsibility.
Children work at their own pace with the adults tilting projects and timelines toward completion.
