Renegade Girls Tinkering Club


Tinkering is the act of taking something apart in order to learn how it works. Then, hopefully, putting it back together and improve on it's design. The term has come to mean a process; a way to approach a challenge. It means building and making. It means getting hands-on with trial and error. It means experiential learning. The Exploratorium defines Tinkering as "thinking with your hands and learning by doing."

​Pure tinkering is open-ended exploration and problem solving. In addition to our Free Tinker challenges, the Renegade Girls Tinkering Club also explores the broader definition to include Making, and hands-on, project based learning when appropriate. the Renegade Girls Tinkering Making and Hands On Project Science Club gets a little wordy so we shortened it!
