Welcome to the World of Tinkermind! We believe that learning and education is fun! Let’s discover new things through tinkering as a Maker. Our training programs emphasize the use of both minds and hands to create objects that exercise the imagination.
Learn creative problem-solving skills through our applied learning programmes that will expose you to both the latest technology and traditional craftwork.
Our engaging maker-centric programmes aim to strengthen interest and capabilities in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM), as well as build problem-solving and 21st-century learning competencies (as defined by MOE).
Come join us in this experiential journey and upgrade yourself through ways you may never have thought possible! Be a Maker, Be a Tinkermind!
