The Creative Material Challenge on Tinkerlab

What is the Creative Challenge Project?

Every few months we host a Creative Challenge for kids where we invite you to invite your child to create with a common material .

The objective is to support creative confidence and encourage skills that develop an innovator’s mindset through material exploration.

Okay, I’m in! What do I need to do?

  1. Gather your materials
  2. Come up with a plan
  3. Run the project
  4. Document it
  5. Share it with us on Instagram.
