Welcome to Tinkers & Thinkers 2020
Saturday, September 12, 2020 | 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
LIVE STREAM EVENT via Zoom.us (more details coming soon)
Our pal Tink, the Robot, is buzzing with excitement about our 2020 Tinkers & Thinkers Innovation Faire!
Although we can't all be together to explore Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (S.T.E.M.) in person, we CAN be together online! Isn't technology swell?! We are thrilled to announce that Tinkers & Thinkers Innovation Faire will be a LIVE-STREAM ONLINE event this year! Whaaaaat?! Yep, and it has a fun, hands-on twist too!
So.....How's it going to work? Well, we tinkered around with some creative idea (some crazier than others), did some mathematical calculations, explored our technology options, did some more creative thinking and then, "wah-la!", we came up with a genius plan! Curious what it is? Good! We love curiosity!!
We are still working out the details but here's the basic blueprint:
Interest participants pre-register for the event. (Registration link coming soon!)
Registration includes access to the online event AND a mysterious box filled with fun S.T.E.M. activities that we will build together!
During the registration process, the participant will select one of three box options based on the age of the participant.
Registered families will pick up their boxes at the new temporary library drop off location at Pleasant Hill City Hall prior to the event. (Details will be forthcoming)
On September 12, the day of the event, participants log on to Zoom for two-hours of S.T.E.M. fun including break-out rooms to build hands-on activities together and live presentations from several local innovators and educators including the Exploritorium, Diablo Valley College and Mike Mengetti. The event will also feature a community Minecraft build room, a LEGO build room, and a live virtual tour of ACE Monster Toys!
Super cool!! Right?! We think so! The entire Tinkers & Thinkers team and Tink can't wait to see you online!

Modeled on other Bay Area Makers Fairs and a series of "Innovation Nights" at the Pleasant Hill Library, Tinkers and Thinkers is celebrating its fourth year! All ages are invited to engage with a variety of "hands-on" make-at-home activities and marvel at the innovations and virtual displays presented by local organizations, educators and entrepreneurs! Tinkers & Thinkers is an event to bring inspiration, creativity, and innovation to our community & beyond!
Tinkers & Tinkers is brought to you through the collaborative (and super fun) partnership of Pleasant Hill Recreation & Park District and the Pleasant Hill Library! Teamwork is dream work!
