Tinkering is known as methodology for its accessibily to science. With this project we reach out to the families of the community who live in the underpriviliged areas of Curaçao. With small and simple activities that can be executed with the garbage of the foodbank bags the family is challenged to make something. Together with the national tv and radio stations we were able to reach more than 30 percent of all citizens of the island.
