Tinkering @Home Initiative

During the summer of 2020, the COVID pandemic was at its height. Vast numbers of children were at home and unable to participate in their normal activities, engage with other children, or attend childcare and preschool programs. The Tinkering Studio seized the opportunity to extend learning in the home by experimenting with new tools and resources to help parents support young children’s engagement in tinkering at home.

The Tinkering@Home initiative was designed to better understand how adults, particularly those without extensive training, would respond to and use invitations to engage in tinkering with children in their care.
