Tinker Tank

Think Tank + Tinker = Tink(er) Tank

Looking for something different?

Come check out Tinker Tank, our hands-on design space, in Building 3 by the Denny Way windows. This bright space offers different staffed, hands-on activities on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays 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. Monday through Thursday the space is unstaffed, but open for exploring paper folding with a variety of origami patterns.
