The Arts & Science Center held its annual family event Tinkerfest on Saturday, Sept. 7, 2019.

This year’s Tinkerfest was full of engaging hands-on, sensory-exploring activities: Make-and-take sensory gel pads and stress balls, and an optical illusion station.

The Museum of Discovery and The Discovery Network, with a grant from Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield's Blue and You Foundation for a Healthier Arkansas, provided a “Sensory Station.” MOD staff transformed the dressing room/yoga studio into a a soothing, welcoming space for those who can experience sensory overload during public events.

The 2019 Tinkerfest was sponsored by The Pine Bluff Area Community Foundation, an affiliate office of the Arkansas Community Foundation, Inc., The Discovery Network, and the Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield’s Blue & You Foundation.
