TinkerTime is an initiative of Mount Annan Christian College for our Primary Students, Prep to Year 6. Our focus is to create an environment for students to explore, design and create.
Learning is inquiry and play based, so that the engagement levels of students is high. Real world problems allow each student to develop their design thinking. Design Thinking is a structured way of solving problems, leading to a refinement of ideas through feedback. The feedback is then used to improve the quality of the work or artifact.
Students will collaborate and share their ideas with one another, they also share their work with a broader audience.
This is the opportunity for our Tinker-bots to develop their ideas by becoming innovators and inventors. They have access to school resources such as laser cutting, 3D printing, robots and computer programming.
