My friend Gever Tulley, founder of Tinkering School, is going to Buffalo NY on October 1, 2010 for a weekend of tinkering and presentations.
Gever Tulley, author of Fifty Dangerous Things (You Should Let Your Children Do), and the founder of the Tinkering School.
Tulley's hands-on educational program teaches kids problem-solving and teamwork skills by giving them real tools and materials to build a variety of projects.
