The Art Of Tinkering

Credit Weldon Owen Books

Karen Wilkinson introduces us to the modern form of tinkering.

Once upon a time, a kid could have a great time with a screwdriver, a pair of pliers, and a kitchen appliance or radio that no longer worked. 

Hold on; that may still be possible. 

Despite the explosion of choices for places a kid can get information or entertainment, the art of tinkering is still with us. 

And the Exploratorium in San Francisco, always supporting tinkering, now offers a book on the subject of taking things apart and putting them together. 

Author Karen Wilkinson joins us to talk about The Art of Tinkering.
