Course Title
The Art of Tinkering

Description of Course:

Modeled after the programming success of San Francisco's renown "Tinkering Studio Program"™ at the "Exploratorium"™, this course will explore the many creative "High-Low"™ outlets of "Makers"™ and "Producers"™ who defy traditional categories of the arts, science and technology for those overlapping intersections where "anything"™ can happen. From hacking the system to aesthetic revelations through deconstructing and repurposing materials, processes and systems in innovative, "disruptive"™ ways, this hands on studio course will explore the physical and mental challenges of learning how to change the world in small but significant, creative ways. We will incorporate material modeling and fabrication, physical computing/electronics and hand think experimental enterprising ways.
