There’s been a lot of talk about makerspaces, but the problem with makerspaces is that they require space, and sometimes you just don’t have that. Although an app will never replace an actual maker space, TinkerBox does a pretty good job. To quote their website, “If you can imagine it, you can built it with TinkerBox.” The app includes different modes and in the free play mode you can use pulleys, levers, and more to create machines and learn some basic physics concepts. There is also a series of puzzles that you can work to solve that will give you ideas for some of the things you could build and create using the app. Click HERE to see a video that gives you a better idea of how TinkerBox works.
