Thinkery To-Go

Think outside the museum—let us bring Thinkery to you! We’d love to be at your upcoming event or science night with innovative learning experiences exploring science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM).

To learn more about our prices and program offerings, please contact Todd Moore, public programs manager, at tmoore@thinkeryaustin.org.

  • Thinkery provides all materials and activity experts to provide fun, educational experiences for your event participants.
  • Our hands-on STEAM activities spark curiosity in children of all ages (2–102).
  • Each activity is housed at its own table provided by the event host.
  • Along with Thinkery educators, we recommend you provide 1–2 volunteers to assist with monitoring tables.
  • Reservations must be made six weeks in advance of the event.
