Creativity in Education

I have mentioned Gever Tulley and the Tinkering School before. Here's more directly from the Tinkering School Newsletter. It is exciting stuff!!

Dear Friends,

As I mentioned in the last newsletter, we're opening a new K-12 school in San Francisco: Brightworks

Because of the tight schedule between now and September when we open, we are regretfully unable to offer our sleep-over camp here in the Bay Area. There are great Tinkering School programs offering full summer schedules in Chicago and Austin
These are programs that are as unique and engaging as our usual summer program and I cannot recommend them enough.

As much as I am reluctant to interrupt our six-year history of amazing camps here in California, I am proud of the new Tinkering School programs appearing around the country and excited to be creating a new kind of school. I hope you'll stick with us; we're going to be back next summer, and I think that Brightworks will justify the interruption in our Tinkering School offerings.

All the best,

P.S. if you haven't heard, I have a new book just out this week on Amazon: Beware Dangerism!
