ScienceWorks Hands-On Museum

Tinker Fest Vendor Application


To all you artists, crafters, inventors, innovators, makers and tinkerers… we at ScienceWorks are so pleased that you are responding to our call-out for ideas.  Together we’ll make the Rogue Valley’s first Tinker Fest an event to remember -- and reinvent -- for years to come!

The event will be held both Saturday and Sunday, September 21 & 22 from 10am-5pm. Details on set up and break down will be included in your acceptance letter.

Please be brief in your descriptions, and include a few visuals that will help us get a better picture of your work. Applications can be submitted via this online system, or a pdf of the proposal questions can be downloaded and answers emailed to

The museum’s Tinker Fest committee will review all ideas in July, and select those that best fit and round out the event’s “think-with-your-hands” mission.  We will be contacting everyone who submitted proposals in mid-July, after the participant selection is complete.
Again, thank you for taking the time to share your vision and collaborate with us on this community-inspired event.
