Tinkering Symposium


Tinkering Symposium



Monday, March 4th, 2019
Madison Avenue Presbyterian Church Day School
921 Madison Avenue | New York, NY 10021
3:15 - 6:00pm

Join us as we explore tinkering in early childhood learning. Keynote speaker, Steve Davee, will explore and illuminate the power of tinkering as a playful learning approach that nurtures and builds on childhood superpowers of creativity and compassion. He will share concrete examples of how various tinkering materials, questions, setups, and provocations can empower outcomes beyond what is traditionally expected of material exploration. Tinkering provides context, meaning, and student-driven explorations and discoveries in science, math, engineering, and any other academic standards desired. It also nurtures design and artistic expression, and has the power to help build creative mindsets, habits of kindness, and social responsibility.
