Thank you to everyone who contributed, tinkered and enjoyed our 5th annual Tinkerfest. Special thanks to our sponsors, Oklahoma EPSCoR and OG&E!

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. Tinkering activities include disassembling cars, creating music, book binding, ukele music, and robotics. There are over 75 activities to enjoy in addition to the museum's permanent exhibits! You'll find something for every age and ability at Tinkerfest.

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 art exploration to numerous crafting and building options.
