Tinkers & Thinkers 2023
Thank you for Tinkering with us!
Hello! Tink, the Robot here.
My human friends at Pleasant Hill Recreation & Park District and the Pleasant Hill Library were super excited to welcome you back to our award-winning Tinkers & Thinkers Innovation Faire at Pleasant Hill Park and the Pleasant Hill Senior Center this year! We hope you were inspired, learned something new, and most importantly, had fun tinkering! We look forward to hearing your feedback and seeing all your amazing photos too!
A special shout-out to all our exhibitors and our event sponsors, the City of Pleasant Hill, Friends of the Pleasant Hill Library, Pleasant Hill Community Foundation, PG&E and Republic Services. And a special thank you to all our volunteers who helped assemble, sort, pack, tape, and transport over 1,000 Maker boxes within one short week. Thank you. You are all OUT OF THIS WORLD!

Thank you again to all you attended. We hope you will keep tinkering and thinking throughout the year.
