Tinkering Tinkerer: Noga Elhassid
Noga Elhassid, is an Israeli artist who created a workshop designed to teach kids basic physical phenomena and mechanical principles through play. Noga's Website
Noga describes her work in the following words: “The Moving Toys Workshop demonstrates scientific principles through simple means using playful teaching strategies.” She has many years of experience with children in the U.S. and Israel, winning awards for her work. The toys are made out of simple and recyclable materials and we continue to explore the ideas that she first shared with us in the first iteration of the Tinkering Studio at the Palace of Fine Arts.
