Project Based Learning

Learn through doing at TinkerTank - all of our lessons and classes are about learning with projects and exploring what we're interested in. It Works. Really.


TinkerTank is Australia's first Maker-Space for everyone, ages 5+. We're all about teaching STEAM - Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics. 

We're a little different from your usual club-house, we teach Robotics, Coding and Design to everyone, and we do it after-school, during the holidays, one the week-ends and for home-educators. We're for everyone - we're bring education on demand to the Northern Beaches. 

Education on Demand: At TinkerTank we don't break our time-slots down into class type or age - we do it by person. When you come to TinkerTank as a member, for the first few weeks you get to experience a bit of everything. Then after a few weeks we'll create a playlist of activities that will guide your learning over the following weeks. 

You get complete control over what you learn, and track your progress as you go. Take photos, share videos and build your portfolio of experiences.

It's time for something different - it's time to Create. Collaborate. And Construct. At TinkerTank.


Don't just read about it.

Come for a tour any Saturday from 10am - 1pm. 

Why TinkerTank? Why STEAM?

STEAM is the combination of a number of areas of education. STEAM is the future of education... and work! The issue we have is this: Schools, communities and governments are struggling to provide a solution for everyone. That's where TinkerTank comes in - we make learning engaging, fun and effective by using Project-based learning as the corner stone of teaching. Without applying learning, you will struggle to get anyone, young or old to retain it. Simply put - we make learning fun.

STEAM skills are required in 75% of new jobs today - that number is only going to increase - it's time to #futureproof at TinkerTank.

What else do we do?

At TinkerTank we have a bunch of things to do during your home school, after school, or holiday schedule. On top of our regular memberships and holiday camps - TinkerTank has a range of things to do:

  • Corpoate Workshops
  • Birthday Parties
  • Studio Hire
  • STEAM Education Consultancy
  • 3D Printer Use
  • Internships and Work Experience

Play. It’s one of the, if not THE, most effective forms of learning.
