This guide gathers the ultimate reflections from the Erasmus+ project "Tinkering EU: Addressing the Adults." It was created for science centers, museums and other places of science education interested in exploring the potential of Tinkering for inclusive learning and engagement. It presents lessons learned about:

  • The co-design and the development of the activities.
  • Relevant elements to consider building meaningful relationships with the local communities.
  • The contribution the project has given to each partner’s institutional change at a wider level.
