After-school and out-of-school programs—as well as home schooling—have been growing steadily for nearly a decade, but instructors are still searching for high-interest content that ties into science standards without the rigidity of current classroom canon. The author draws on more than 20 years of experience doing hands-on science to facilitate tinkering: learning science while fooling around with real things.

Curt Gabrielson runs the Watsonville Environmental Science Workshop and works with science education in East Timor. He has been a science educator for more than 20 years, with positions in the California public schools, the National University of East Timor, and San Francisco’s Exploratorium Teacher Institute.Review:
This book is terrific! The philosophy couldn't have been better stated. Curt writes beautifully; it's very readable and his overall message is indisputably valuable, especially in these times of electronic gadgets. As the book points out, in recent years we find our kids can't even tie their shoes! Thus, in order to truly learn science, they need access to these sorts of hands-on opportunities more than ever. So hooray for the very valuable notion of community science workshops, such as have been pioneered in California!Paul Hewitt, Author of Conceptual Physics
