The TinkRworks Approach

TinkRworks Offerings + School Teachings = 21st Century Preparedness

TinkRworks prepares students to achieve success in a 21st century world! Students work in a creative maker environment where they complete hands-on projects that reinforces what they learn in school. They develop enhanced problem solving and critical reasoning skills by using their minds and hands to create beautiful solutions to problems challenging the world today. At TinkRworks, we provide exceptional hands-on experiences that teach children to make, and think, through experimentation, failure and iteration.


Our instructional approach emphasizes:

● Making ● Project-based learning ● Holistic curriculum ● Inter-disciplinary approaches ● Best available resources ●

Founded on excellence in Instruction with Low Student-Teacher Ratios

Implementing our approach requires that we hire only top-notch instructors. On this point, the instructor base we have assembled
comprises of lifelong TinkRers: PhDs, university professors, technology-industry veterans, and gifted teachers - who share a
passion for supporting and guiding each student to success.

Additionally, we firmly believe that each student needs direct and personal access to these instructors.
As a result, we maintain low student to instructor ratios of 6:1 which allows students to explore new learnings and experiences.
