Calling all tinkerers! Do you know someone in grades 4 through 9 who likes seriously fun, hands-on projects? Our NEW Tinker Crate is for you! The May/June Tinker Crate features a hydraulic claw that tinkerers can design, build and evolve to pick up balls, candy, marshmallows or anything else you can imagine. The crate comes with a hydraulic claw kit, a guide to build your claw, several different activities to explore as well as a couple surprises! The only thing you will need for this Crate is a screw driver.
Space is limited to 20 individuals. Register now to get your May/June Tinker Crate by May 3.
