Tinker Tank Is Going On The Road

Join us at The Seattle Design Festival’s Block Party September 12-13 at Occidental Park.  And also at Seattle Mini Maker Faire September 19-20 at EMP Museum at Seattle Center. We’ll have some design challenges for you and some very special surprises. Don’t miss either event. Learn more about both in this PacSci Podcast.

Looking for something different?

Come check out our maker space Tinker Tank, in Building 3 by the Denny Way windows. Formerly known as The Lab, this bright space offers different staffed, hands-on activities on Fridays and Saturdays from 1-5 p.m.

We experiment with aerodynamics using some wind tables (vertical wind tunnels), gravity walls, cardboard amusement parks, Keva blocks, electric circuits and much more. Saturday through Thursday the space is unstaffed, but open for exploring paper folding with a variety of origami patterns.
