The Tinker Lab is the key educational program at Lewis H. Latimer House Museum to serve high-quality, innovative hands-on activities treating science and technology as an integral part of the humanities. In the Tinker Lab, participants use an array of technologies such as Scratch, Ev3, and Wedo, and build from scratch using various micro-controllers, proto boards, and coding programs. The museum sees the drive to build in three-dimensional spaces and coding as an invaluable 21st century literacy skillset.
