This is an awesome camp opportunity for kids aged 8 to 12. Discovery and experimentation includes making mistakes, but so often trial and error aren’t a part of our modern classroom. Schools often miss teaching the value of problem solving, and kids are inadvertently taught to internalize failure. That’s what Tinker Camp is all about, help kids find the joy in success and failure, and hopefully in the process, create a life-long love for problem-solving and experimentation in every tinker.
