Talking With the Tinkering Studio

By Ally Browne, Marketing Intern

For a limited time, the Tinkering Studio has expanded into the main gallery, giving tinkerers both young and old a chance to let their inner inventor out with fun new projects. Along with the extra space, the studio also has extended hours, always open whenever the Fleet is open, with both unfacilitated and facilitated activities.

Shocking Live Science Shows

Science gets messy at the Fleet

Don’t Try This At Home! is a series of exciting live shows, full of extreme science you won’t see anywhere else. Where else can you see an electrostatic generator make cereal fly out of your hand, or watch what happens when you attach toilet paper to a leaf blower? These shows are shocking, messy and loud, and are both educational and fun. Even the most innovative and creative young scientists can’t do these experiments anywhere else!
