Can I try out a class before enrolling?


Prior to the start of a season, leaders will often offer Free Trial class sessions so that parents and children can experience what a Tinkergarten class is all about. At the end of the class, they can ask the Leader questions about the program and the upcoming season curriculum.

These free trial classes, and all classes, can be found by following these steps:

  1. Click on "Classes" above or visit
  2. Enter your zip code or city, state.
  3. The page will return all upcoming full-season classes in your area. You can scroll down and click to expand the geographical radius.
  4. If you would like to join a free trial class, click on the orange "Try a Free Class" button in the middle of the screen to see a list of upcoming free trial classes.

Once you've found a free class that you'd like to attend, you can register. In addition, if Leaders have remaining spots in their full-season classes, they are often happy to have a family join for a trial session even after classes have commenced. If you are interested in joining for a particular session, please click on the Leader's name to find his/her email address. Reach out to introduce yourself and inquire about a mid-season visit.
