Get ready to play, build, create and explore at the Museum of Discovery's annual maker event.

Tinkerfest engages children and adults, teaches visitors how everyday objects such as cars and computers work, and provides opportunities to explore the engineering and science behind building objects.

The event takes over the entire museum and neighboring streets all day long to offer more than 40 hands-on activities. From 9 a.m.-3 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 14, kids can play while learning and better understanding various STEM concepts.

Some of the activities that will be taking palce at Tinkerfest include marble art nail polish, solar powered scribble bots, water rockets and even airplane design and testing. The festival celebrates innovation, exploration and discovery through all of the exhibits and activities. 

New this year, the museum is including a sensory station for guests with sensory processing disorders. The station, operated by The Discovery Network, will include several sensory-friendly activities in a calming and soothing environment.
