Tinkerlab

 

 

 

 

June 10, 2017 – January 21, 2018

The UAMA is thrilled to announce a new offering, the Tinkerlab. The Tinkerlab is a makerspace that will take over the Art Lab gallery from June 10-January 21. What is a makerspace? Makerspaces are environments that foster experimentation, invention, problem solving, and creativity. These creative environments are in many ways a throwback to the artist studios of the renaissance, where artists, inventors, and scientists were not considered separate disciplines.

The Tinkerlab at the UAMA features drop-in engineering and art activities for young children ages 5-12. Tinkerlab’s activities foster critical thinking, problem solving, and collaboration through fun, hands-on engagements!

Drop in during regular museum hours for books, open-sketch, build with blocks, or create a mobile.


Special Tinkerlab events for the whole family:
Come tinker, explore, build, design from 10:00a.m.-1:00pm. Free with regular museum admission.
