Book Description

After-school and out-of-school programs—as well as home schooling—have been growing steadily for nearly a decade, but instructors are still searching for high-interest content that ties into science standards without the rigidity of current classroom . The author draws on more than 20 years of experience doing hands-on science to facilitate tinkering: learning science while fooling around with real things.

In this book, you'll learn:

  • Tinkering techniques in key science areas
  • How to let learn science with hands-on tinkering
  • Engaging techniques for science learning at home, in school, or at a makerspace or library
  • Step-by-step instructions for activities that don't end with a single , but that provide many paths for "tinkering forward".
