Designing for Tinkering

Tinkering is the idea of exploring, experimenting, and trying new things.  Decide what your audience would want to tinker with.  What are their ages and backgrounds?  You must account for their strengths and limitations.  Remember to be EMPATHETIC and use encouragement while explaining a new idea or tool.

Why is it important to tinker in a maker space?                                                                                                                                                                                                                 

  • explore new paths
  • imagine new possibilities
  • Tinkerers learn how to improvise, create and adapt to change
