Tinkerfest, a one-day festival that celebrates the creative, curious, and innovative spirit in all of us, returns to Northwest Arkansas on Saturday, October 7, 2017 from 9 am until 4 pm. The 2017 event will be held at the Scott Family Amazeum and is included with your paid admission or your membership.
The Amazeum will bring together makers, artists, and tinkerers to showcase their work while inviting attendees of all ages to join in the DIY (do it yourself) fun. Tinkerfest brings technology together with craftspeople, educators, families and artists to learn from each other. Whether you are a beginner or an avid tinkerer, Tinkerfest is a great family activity where all can experiment and learn things together. Ages 4-104 will find a tinkering experience to explore.
Returning to Tinkerfest this year is the popular car take apart activity. Other activity stations include 3D printing, technology dissection and upcycling, and interactive activities created by students at regional schools.
New to Tinkerfest this year is Fix It Café sponsored Rogers Experimental House. Volunteer engineers, makers and tinkerers at Fix It Café will work with guests to diagnose and attempt to repair broken small appliances, gadgets, and toys. Participants must carry items into Fix It Café. No large appliances, phones, software, or computers accepted.
