From parents of TinkerTech students

My children absolutely LOVE Tinker Tech.  They started in Kindergarten and have loved learning to build and code and make their creations come to life.  It teaches them technology in a way that I couldn’t do on my own at home and reminds them that building from scratch is satisfying and full of fun!  Highly recommend this program!


Ashley, parent of Kindergarten and 3rd grade TinkerTech students

My daughter LOVES this class so very much.  The class content, the teachers, the attitude of her fellow students - everything!  I have signed her up over the years for a lot of things (you know the drill) and I think I can say this one is currently topping the favorites list.

From TinkerTech students

TinkerTech is my favorite class because I can make what I want. I like to build electric vehicles and launchers. I think the class should be longer to give me more time - I want everything we create to be electric!

From schools using TinkerTech curriculum

Our preschoolers LOVE Tinker Tech and are always excited when Friday arrives! Claire Comins has created a fun, accessible and engaging STEAM curriculum.  It gives our preschoolers exposure to new materials, new tools, new techniques, and new concepts that encourage hands-on learning and fun. It also inspires our children to see themselves as scientists, architects, creators, artists, and makers.
Even our littlest makers (3.5 years old) love the hands-on introduction to circuitry and electronics brought to life by adding a LED light. The variety of fun materials from cardboards and laser cut wood, to copper tape, and batteries make the child want to experiment, design and assemble.  It helps build their curiosity as well as develop their creative confidence and critical thinking. They are so proud of their take-home projects.
