Maker Workshop: Tinkering with Wind-Up Toys

Ever wonder what makes wind-up toys jump, shake or walk? Tinkerers in this workshop will learn how these toys work by taking them apart, altering them and adding components to create new, unique wind-up toys. No prior experience is required.

What is Tinkering?
Tinkering is learning through making. Participants in this workshop will be encouraged to make mistakes and experiment with new materials. What will your reimagined wind-up toy look like?

Please note:
