Not your grandparent's tinker toys...

The Makerspace is bringing tinker toys into the 21st century. While you will still find wooden blocks and Legos among our tinker toys the majority of our manipulable "toys" require batteries and a good dose of design thinking. We've got everything from GraviTrax to robots, LittleBits to Microduino, and more. While you can't take any of these tinker toys home with you, they are always available to be enjoyed while you visit Rubber Duck Lab.

Looking for more?

Check out our video library of Tech-Talks led by our Master Makers. Each video features a how-to on one of the 21st century tinker toys, or other tech, found in the Makerspace.
