What Teachers Are Saying

TinkerClass definitely gets students thinking as they’re going through and creating and communicating and saying to themselves ‘What’s working?’, ‘What’s not working?’, ‘How can we can we do this?’, or ‘How can you change this?'”

Emily Nagle

The language of the Wow and the Wonder so naturally folds into the scientific process or the teaching of scientific skills because that’s how many scientists start investigations.
