Little Rock, AR - The second annual Tinkerfest will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, June 15, offering the public a chance to build and create without limits. The event is put on by the Arkansas Discovery Network, a six-museum partnership in the state for which the Museum of Discovery serves as the hub.
More than 40 tinkering stations will be set up both inside and outside of the museum. Visitors will have the opportunity to create with 3D printers, disassemble a vehicle, meet robot makers, participate in water balloon catapulting duels, build and launch rockets, learn to crochet, create a cardboard city and much more.
According to Joel Gordon, the museum's Visitor Experience Director, Tinkerfest grew out of the Maker Movement, which has recently soared in popularity globally.
There is no extra cost to attend Tinkerfest. Regular museum admission will apply: $10 for adults, $8 for children, free for members.
