Tinker Academy is a FREE program designed to engage and inspire middle school students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Through hands-on maker activities that encourage the exploration and development of technical, mathematical and artistic abilities, participants will gain experience and confidence to set them up for success in school. This program was originally called the “Girls Tinker Academy” and developed for girls with an aim to support girls and people of color who are underrepresented in STEM fields. It is is open to all students entering 6th-9th graders in Fall 2023 including gender-expansive youth.
Tinker Academy is sponsored by Community WISE (Women Investing in STEM Equity) and is a project of the Career Technical Education (CTE) Foundation Sonoma County. It is made possible thanks to the generous donations of individuals, businesses and foundations.
