At Tinker Truck we believe that hands-on exploratory learning (aka tinkering) is a cognitively distinct mode of learning for children. Additionally, tinkering builds confidence, inventiveness and self-sufficiency and is the early foundation for a future generation of entrepreneurs. We embrace “maker culture” primarily through an ethos of always trying new things and learning from the results. Some things work, and others don’t. Figuring it out is the fun part. 
Tinker Truck operates a mobile maker-space for kids and adults. We offer programs that explore all aspects of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) education with an emphasis on discovering what happens when kids blend two or more of these disciplines. As a mobile operation we’re able to bring programming to your school, summer camp, community center, neighbourhood park, or your kitchen table. We also organize whole-school shows like STEAM nights and Science Fairs.
Tinker Truck supplies all materials, tools and safety equipment and leave no trace when we cleanup. You can trust us to deliver a great experience, create lasting memories, and leave your facility cleaner than when we arrived.
Additionally, Tinker Truck offers consulting services for schools and groups looking to either develop an in-school maker space, or provide professional development using simple tools in the classroom to their staff.

“We were extremely happy with the programming Tinker Truck provides at Maker Club! The projects keep the kids engaged and they have a great time doing them. Most importantly, Cam does an amazing job facilitating the programs and interacting with the kids. The feedback we continually receive from parents and participants is always excellent. ”
