ASU Museum to Host TinkerFest!


What’s the buzz about TinkerFest?  On June 9, 2018 you are invited to come to ASU Museum and find out. Happening from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM, TinkerFest is free to the public.

This event serves as a fun, excellent opportunity for NYIT and A-State departments and organizations to help introduce regional youth to A-State as a future choice for higher education in STEAM careers. Most of the tinkering experiences will be led by A-State and NYIT faculty, staff, and students. Imagine what fun it will be to engage in a giant Frankenstein “Operation Game” led by Dr. Andy Grass of NYIT, or to be given a real engineering challenge by A-State engineering majors, Nazmul Hassan and Kazi Tamzidul Islam!

In the midst of a festival atmosphere, TinkerFest visitors will take things apart, paint with spices, shoot paper rockets into the air, guide the path of a (pretend) mars rover, and so much more!

TinkerFest is sponsored in part by the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation and in part by a grant from the Carl B. and Florence E. King Foundation.
