School group guide

Tinkerfest is a one-day festival at Chabot Space & Science Center that celebrates the creative, curious, and inventive spirit in all of us. We will bring together makers, artists, and tinkerers to showcase their work and invite attendees of all ages to join in on the DIY fun! During the daylong event, the entire center will be energized with many hand-on activities including the popular "Take Apart" zones where tinkerers can see, touch, and dismantle objects in order to learn how they work.

We are looking for volunteers to help with the behind-the-scenes logistics. This includes helping guests with wayfinding, assisting with set-up and take-down of activities, running water bottles, etc. In light of the current health situation, volunteers will be asked to wear a mask at all times when working with the public.

Pizza and t-shirts will be provided for all volunteers. We hope to see you there!

About Chabot Space & Science Center

Location:

10000 Skyline Boulevard, Oakland, CA 94619, US

Mission Statement

The Chabot Space & Science Center inspires and educates students of all ages about our Planet Earth and the Universe. Its observatory, planetarium, exhibits, and natural park setting are places where a diverse population of students, teachers, and the public can imagine, understand and learn to shape their future through science.

Description

Through partnership and community support, Chabot Space & Science Center is taking a leadership role in helping to guarantee that our children have a powerful resource for the next century's biggest educational challenge, equal access to high quality science and technology programs. Recognizing the new Science Center as a national model for other communities, in May 1998 the Smithsonian Institution and Chabot Space & Science Center entered into an affiliation agreement. Chabot is the only affiliate to focus on astronomy and the interrelationship of the sciences. In January 2000, the White House Millennium Council named the Chabot Space & Science Center an official Millennium Project. The White House Millennium Council recognizes national and local projects that facilitate public awareness of important educational and scientific issues that we as a nation will face in the new millennium. The Chabot Space & Science Center addresses the critical issue of broad access to the specialized information and facilities needed to improve K-12 science education and public science literacy. Chabot continues to offer inquiry-based student programs, which correlate to state and national science education standards, and will expand and develop new programs for students, teachers, and the general public.
