December – Three Ring Circuits!

Explore electricity in motion! Using holiday lights and conductive dough we’ll experiment with simple, series and parallel circuits and discover how electrical currents flow. Demonstrations, hands-on tinkering, and clips from our award winning show, Innovation Nation will shine a light on the power of electricity.

Special – Daily December 26 – January 8, 2017 10am – 3pm
Keep your brain engaged while on holiday break, join the Tinker Task Force every day to play with squishy circuits.  

January 2017 – Best of Tinker. Hack. Invent. Saturday 

We’ll bring in 2017 by highlighting the best projects of 2016. Tinker with flight, learn to solder with a simple LED badge*, make a tinkering journal, and build a bot.* 

Special – Saturday January 7, 10am – 3pm
The Tinker Task Force joins forces with the Girl Scout Council of Southeastern Michigan during their cookie rally kickoff day celebrating 100 years of iconic cookie sales.  Guests of all ages can make their own batch of glitter dough to commemorate the Girl Scout’s successful fund-raising idea.
