- Explore bubble chemistry, and how the construction and physics behind your machine helps bubbles form. Experiment with different wand positions and bubble formulas to make bigger, better bubbles, and practice noting your observations like scientists do! Then take a stab at more at-home explorations, from concocting your own super bubble mix, to building a pipe-cleaner bubble wand, to practicing bubble tricks.
- Engineer a drip irrigation system and sprout a love of botany and physics! Construct the water tower and trellis, set up the planter pots, then grow your own bean, wheatgrass, and watermelon plants. Explore the science of irrigation and the different ways that farmers put water to work (from flood irrigation to spray irrigation to computer-controlled farming!).
- No summer camp? No problem! Create your own STEM-powered summer camp at home, with this 5-pack bundle of some of our most popular Tinker crates. There's something here for every budding scientist, engineer, or innovator — from hands-on projects to amazing articles.
- Explore chaotic motion with a double pendulum and UV light!
- Make a spin art machine and experiment with centrifugal forces!
- Build two custom electronic art pieces with EL wire. Choose from five existing templates, or create your own from scratch.
- Build a unicorn costume with a majestic mane, a noble snout, and a horn that lights up!
- Learn how primary colors can be used to make all the colors of the rainbow, and how complementary and analogous colors work together. Then use what your newfound color knowhow to craft a couple of abstract poured paintings.
- Construct your own lifting claw and learn how hydraulic systems work. Continue the experimentation with bonus design challenges.
Through Tinker Camp, supplement & extend Hydraulic Claw with FREE content, video and additional DIY activities.
