Tinkering Staff Member: Michael Wong
For a long time I’ve been interested in finding the most enjoyable way to learn about interesting things. As an avid cricket fan, I became interested in physics when I realised that a cricket ball does different things when it's spun in different ways. Weights and ratios gained a new level of importance when I discovered my love for brewing coffee. And ever since my first bike ride I’ve been enamored by gears. So many impactful learning experiences have occurred when I’ve been doing something other than trying to learn. They’ve come when I’ve been playing, or exploring, or just messing around. As a Museum Educator with the Tinkering Studio, I’m excited to uncover the learning experiences that are inherent in all experiences…in particular, the fun, fanciful, and fantastic ones.
