Hands-on learning that is fun, fun and more fun (and has loads of learning to boot)!

In the Saturday Tinkerers we teach fundamental engineering concepts but with the spirit of freedom that encourages kids to use their own creativity and imagination in coming up with their own models and toys. They’ll learn some circuitry, the basic principles of logical programming and the creative “glue” that holds it all together and makes it fun to use.

This class meets 8 times on Saturday from 11:00-12:00.  Our final class will include a short showcase of what we’ve learned. This class meets 6 times on Saturday from 12:00-1:00.   Class dates are:  March 30, April 6, 13, May 4, 11, 18.

Fee: $150.00 includes enrollment fee and all materials.  You may sign up for a trial class (free), below.

Each week the Young Tinkerers work on a different project that encourages hands-on learning in science, technology, engineering and integrated arts. Our projects vary week to week and many have a take home component.  Some themes:

  • Robotics
  • Coding
  • Flying Machines
  • Marine Engineering
  • Our Brain
  • Make a Circuit

SPRING! Saturday PreK Class

Hands-on learning that is fun, fun and more fun (and has loads of learning to boot)!

What to do when our youngest tinkerers crave the same kind of exploration they see their older siblings doing? We’ve started WEE CURIOUS ONES – a program just for preschoolers.  Learning how much fun you can have through tinkering and building is so much fun, especially during the winter months when they are indoors more than not. This Saturday class is designed to turn  them on to activities that encourage playful curiosity while working with natural, recycled and new materials to explore their world through some hands-on projects, games, movement that explore the way things work around them.

This class meets 6 times on Saturday from 10:00-10:50 AM.  Our final class will include a short showcase of what we’ve learned.  Class dates are:  April 13, 20, May 4, 11, 18, June 1

Fee: $135includes enrollment fee and all materials

STEAMRevolution Continues!

Break away from the usual camp! 

Come Make Stuff! 

In the STEAMCamp, you can investigate your ideas. Build on them. Share them with others.  Rather than sign up for one type of class, you get to try your hand at a few things in a half or full day session. The overall camp term is 5 days long, Monday-Friday, April 22-26. However, you can choose a 3 or 5-day option (see below).

You get to explore, make, build, design, hang-out, learn cool stuff, meet some fun folks, take it apart, build it up and more.  The April spring break camp will have an environmental engineering and environmental theme. Plan to solve some BIG problems — ones that really need solving! From robotics to clean environments…how do we make things work well….FOR US??

This camp will allow for students to try their hand at a variety of activities including coding, circuitry, engineering challenges, science experiments, a recycled art project, a group design and build project…and we’ll be thinking of more things as the date gets closer.

Camp runs five days: April 22-26 at our White Plains location.

Options are as follows:

Materials and supplies are included in these rates. 

3-Day Session (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday) 

  • 3-HALF-DAY MORNINGS SESSIONS (: 9:00-12:00 ($175)
  • 3-FULL-DAY SESSIONS:  9:00-4:00 (including lunch break) ($275)

5-day Session (Monday through Friday) 

  • 5-HALF-DAY MORNINGS SESSIONS (: 9:00-12:00 ($225)
  • 5-FULL-DAY SESSIONS:  9:00-4:00 (including lunch break, bring your own lunch) ($450)

Late pick up and early drop off options available. Early drop off is 8:30 AM and late pick up is 5:00 PM. 

A limited number of partial scholarships are available. Please email us @ [email protected]

Program is for ages 6-10 or grades 2-5.  This program is not suitable for younger students but we know that are variations in children’s development so we welcome the chance to discuss a special situation with you. Please email us at [email protected]
