Welcome to Thinkery At Home!
Thinkery is committed to supporting Austin’s children, caregivers, and educators, and serving our community – both in the museum and while learning at home!
While our doors may be closed to the public (for now), we’re excited to keep bringing you playful STEAM learning through fun, original, and FREE online content. We’re doing this with a focus on materials and tools that are likely available in the home and require minimal preparation.
