Don't Just Make...CREATE!

Anytime. Anywhere.

Do you like getting creative? Working with your hands? Making something unique that's all your own? If you answered yes, this is the experience for you!

Just Tinkering is just like the tinkering workshops at the science center, but with a twist - you can do all of these activities at home! We give you a list of everything you need, step-by-step instruction videos with our amazing Team and unique topics that are perfect for tinkerers of all ages!

Everything you'll need can be found on Amazon! Your purchase through Amazon Smile helps support the science center's mission to serve our community by providing informal science education and fun in order to spark a passion for the sciences by combining interactive exhibits and educational programming.

(Remember to make sure Toledo's Science Center is your charity of choice!)
