What is Tinkerlab?

Tinkerlab introduces science, technology, engineering and math concepts through play, experimentation and discovery. Drop-in for weekly self-directed challenges, mess around with cool inventor kits at monthly Tinkerlab Commons, and let us show you how to create amazing things using digital technology during Tinkerlab Academies.
