This is not your average art book. Brought to you by the Exploratorium's Tinkering Studio, The Art of Tinkering is an unprecedented celebration of what it means to tinker: to take things apart, explore tools and materials, and build wondrous, wild art that's part science and part technology. Join 150+ makers as they share the stories behind their beautiful and bold work--and learn a few lessons in tinkering yourself. Karen Wilkinson and Mike Petrich are Science Educators for the Institute For Inquiry and project directors for several NSF and NEA funded science, art, and technology programs at the Exploratorium. They founded and now direct the Tinkering Studio, and draw on more than ten years of working as a team, integrating science and art and technology curriculum for in-school and out-of-school learning environments. Of particular interest to them is the functional design of informal learning environments to foster creative thinking, and inquiry learning. They live in the San Francisco Bay Area. "I fell in love with all the geniuses at the tinkering studio. I may contract them to build me a home inside the museum so I can live there and learn forever." --Reggie Watts, comedian "A must-read for every maker." --Adam Savage Less «
This collection of individual programs tells a wide range of stories, reflecting the diverse interests of the Exploratorium community.
