The tinkering returns to Downtown Texarkana courtesy of Discovery Place Interactive Museum and presenting sponsor Ledwell Machinery on Saturday, June 2,  from 10AM until 4PM. 

Downtown TinkerTown is a way of bringing children together with activities they might not normally get to experience.  From the lost art of making ropes and forging metal to new science facts such as how science applies to an everyday roll of toilet paper.  The activities aren't just simple spaces where vendors hand out fliers about their products, but children participate in hands-on activities and go home with an expanded knowledge, not even realizing they've been learning rather than playing.

"After last year's success, we have eagerly been waiting for the opportunity to present our 2nd Annual TinkerTown.  We've added new hands-on, make and take activities and 'tinkerers' to the mix and we look forward to having an even better response than last year!", said Board President, Velvet Cool.

Tickets to the event will be $10 per person with Family Pack Rates available also.  Tickets may be purchased at any museum location or here. Call 903-793-4831 for more information on being a presentor or purchasing tickets.
