Summer Tinkering - Session 1
An immersive, five-day building experience that springs out of Mark Day School’s long standing collaboration with the world-renowned Tinkering School in San Francisco, this program seeks to empower students by introducing them to real tools and challenging them with these four goals:

1. Make mistakes and learn from them
2. Build something bigger than themselves
3. Collaborate and make new friends
4. Try harder than usual

Each week-long session at Summer Tinkering at Mark Day is a student-centered experience during which students ages 10-13 imagine, design and build incredible large scale creations out of wood under the watchful guidance of caring and experienced Mark Day faculty and staff. Each week begins with a surprise theme that provides the structure and story for the week. Past themes have included Harry Potter, where students designed and built the Hogwarts Express steam train, and Pirates where students spent the week building a GIANT pirate ship and an island to hide their treasure on!
