Tinker Tank

Think Tank + Tinker = Tink(er) Tank

To help make your holidays a little bit brighter, Pacific Science Center's Tinker Tank offers this free DIY paper circuit kit with a downloadable holiday card template. The materials are available at our Store which is adjacent to Tinker Tank in Building 3. For those who make a donation during Giving Tuesday, the materials will be mailed to you. Thanks and happy holidays from Pacific Science Center.

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.
