Guests of all ages can follow in the inventive footsteps of Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell and Leonardo da Vinci in the new and improved Tinkering Studio! Work together with other Fleet visitors to experiment and collaborate on creative activities designed to spark curiosity and foster exploration. Make origami and Spirograph artwork, design and construct simple mechanical toys from recycled materials, build marble “roller coasters” using tubes and ramps or create “digital bling” using colorful LED lights, batteries and accessories. These are just a few examples of the activities you'll find in the Tinkering Studio.

The Tinkering Studio was made possible by a major gift in honor of Grace and Jeffrey, and generous grants from the Kenneth T. and Eileen L. Norris Foundation and the Mandell Weiss Charitable Trust.
