Kids use real tools and real materials to build and create. Adults serve as collaborators rather than teachers for maximum engagement, enthusiasm, and enjoyment.
We will have intro to the woodshop and tool training, free-build time, small building projects and tinkering challenges, and at least one truly epic large scale building project.

When & Where
Kami runs Austin Tinkering School. After running a preschool as well as teaching art, science, nature, and carpentry classes, she saw Gever Tulley’s TED talk, 5 Dangerous Things (you should let your children do) and realized that Austin needed a tinkering school, stat. Gever Tulley came to visit Austin and he agreed. Now she, also, has had the pleasure of putting power tools in the hands of second graders, and has loved every minute of it.
