Tinker Lab after-school club for grades 3-6 offers opportunities to build experiences and skills in technology, engineering, science, and math.

Each semester students will design and build around different ideas. Our design challenges this semester are:

  • Explore the basics of robotics. Build and program a robot so that it can navigate an obstacle course.
  • Engineer machines that can build or do battle,  as well as solve complex problems and challenges.
  • Delve into the technology behind video games and movies. Design your own games and animations.

Tinker Lab design challenges change each semester.
