Season 1 of Tinkering For Grown-Ups
Event space and beer fueled by Lagunitas Community Room
237 NE Broadway, Suite 300
|| Imagine if it was your responsibility to save humanity.
In this episode, we will be doing just that by creating a spacecraft
capable of carrying a select crew into the furthest reaches of space.
Using motors, tape, lights and anything in our mad collection of materials
and tools we will undertake a number of tinkering challenges designed
to get us all into space.
||Everyone loves a carnival. There are exhilarating rides,
unusual characters and animals and challenging games. In this episode,
we will put on a carnival that you design, build and run. Want to
invent mini-carnival rides from used toys? Have you ever dreamed of
making hand cranked mechanical toys? Then join us for an evening of
carnival fun. You may get a chance to try out juggling, tight-rope
and stilt walking, and you'll participate in a variety of theatrical
and artistic experiences all based on the fascinating world of The
Carnival. Come one, Come all!

| About Tinkering for Grown-Ups: |
Almost from the
day we started Tinker Camp, parents have said, "I wish you would do
this for adults."
And so we did.
Our goal is to offer a similar building/making/tinkering experience as we
offer the kids at our summer camps.... albeit more compressed and with beer.
Of course we are doing this to have fun, but also to demonstrate how our
narrative-based, open tinkering system works. We hope that you will expand
your understanding of the use of narrative for your kids, whether they are
your own or they are in your classroom. The Tinkering for Grown-ups events
are free of charge and are 21 and older only.
