What is Tinkerfest?

Tinkerfest is a daylong celebration of curiosity and creativity. Free to the community, this event gives individuals the opportunity to get hands-on experience learning how things work. Past tinkering activities have spanned from disassembling cars, candle making, creating music, podcast production, foil sculpting, loom knitting and robotics. There are typically over 50 activities to enjoy in addition to the museum's permanent exhibits! You'll find something for every age and ability at Tinkerfest.

Typically held the last Saturday in September, every year SMO has adapted Tinkerfest to the changing needs of our community.

Calling all tinkerers! Applications are OPEN for Tinkerfest 2022! Have a skill, project, or trade that you've always wanted to share? Apply today to join SMO for a daylong celebration of curiosity and creativity. 


What is tinkering?

Tinkering is a valuable form of learning powered by exploration and discovery. Have you ever repaired something that was broken? Toyed with a recipe? Taken something apart just to see what was inside? That's tinkering!

Guests of all ages will have the opportunity to get hands-on with a variety of activities from using raw materials and tools to create unique machines to launching rockets and art exploration, plus numerous crafting and building options.
