In his TEDTalk, Gever Tulley uses engaging photos and footage to demonstrate the valuable lessons kids learn at his Tinkering School.
Gever Tulley is the co-founder of the Tinkering School, a week long summer camp that allows children the opportunity to allow their young imaginations to run wild. They are given tools, materials and guidance, and the freedom to allow their “creative problem-solving” to take over. They build anything and everything, from “unique boats, bridges, and even a roller coaster.”
Tully says the purpose of his Tinkering School is to help kids “learn how to build, solve problems, use new materials and hack old ones for new purposes.”
He is also the author of 50 Dangerous Things (You Should Let Your Kids Do).
