The Tinkering Experience

The Tinkering Experience is packed full of exciting challenges that stimulate the minds of both children and adults. First design, then create a person and/or a car to spark your innovation after digging through a pile of laser cut cardboard pieces. Not feeling creative? Still stop by and join the free build section with no objective, just building.

Activities will vary for ages 3 and up. Included with general admission into Arizona Science Center.
