TINKERTOY: Build Your Imagination

ImaginOn welcomes "TINKERTOY®: Build Your Imagination™" exhibit this summer

There’s no limit to what kids can do in TINKERTOY®: Build Your Imagination™, a new interactive exhibit targeted to children ages 3-10 that will be at ImaginOn from May 20 to September 10, 2017. Giant replicas of the classic TINKERTOY construction set provide the framework for fun, educational activities inspired by GE technologies that turn imagination into working solutions to real world challenges. Kids can design, build and work together to make amazing TINKERTOY structures. Experiment with renewable energy and water filtration; create inventions, and build, build, build!
