Tinkering Activities

A new activity featured every month!

Inside the IDEA Lab there is a tinkering space, located at the front of the learning world, which features monthly activities that are open to the public and included with admission. You can stop by for a few minutes or a few hours to tinker around on a creation that’s all your own.


Stop-Motion Animation
Learn how your eyes and brain work together to blend each individual frame of a stop-motion film to make the animation appear seamless. Develop your own storyboard and take your ideas from page to the pixel as you explore the technology of stop-motion animation.

Visitors can download their videos or get inspiration from other visitors by visiting our Flickr account. Please allow 24 - 48 hours for your videos to be uploaded to the site.
