It’s hard to find products that promote STEM learning, truly engage kids’ creativity, are effective across a wide range of ages and abilities, and require no specialized teacher training or equipment. Tinkering Labs delivers all of that.

We love this kit! We’re doing one Challenge a week with our 3rd and 4th graders, and the enthusiasm our students bring to it is amazing.

We incorporate the Catalyst Kits into our unit on circuitry. The various components allow our students to play with concepts of engineering and electricity. Through their own process of tinkering, they are able to make meaning and develop a deeper sense of understanding.
COLIN REYNOLDS Tinkerlab Curator, Bennett Day School Chicago, IL
I use the Catalyst to bring STEM access to my students. Students have such a fear of failing - we so often give them very narrow parameters for success, and the Catalysts offer students a very broad definition of what success can look like.

When children are curious, learning follows. Our students respond to how “real” the Tinkering Labs Catalyst is - real motors, real wood parts, real hardware. The Challenges give our students creative, hands-on problem-solving experiences that stretch their thinking.
