Tinkering promotes creative problem solving, flexible thinking, a failure-positive mindset, and to top it off. . . it is incredibly fun! Working with other like-minded children and adult collaborators, Campers will have a chance to bring their imaginations to life.
Participants will spend the morning designing, building, and tinkering with DCM. This single day program gives young artists and makers a chance to experience the joy of making!
Location: The majority of Tinkering Fridays will be held outdoors at DuPage Children’s Museum. We will have access to outdoor work space as well as playtime in the Museum.
