Renegade - a rebellious individual who rejects conventions of a group
Welcome to the club... Build! Explore! Solve! Tinker!
Calling all kids for fun, community, and building a strong STEM/STEAM foundation!
We founded the Renegade Girls Tinkering Club to inspire girls to love tinkering and making! We learn by doing and think with our hands, building, trying, designing, repeating. Girls face unique challenges in STEM fields, and the club was created to encourage them in a supportive, safe environment centered on community building and lots and lots of fun! Every girl's contribution is valuable and deserves to be heard!
In 2017 we decided to open Renegade Boys Tinkering Club, welcoming our future allies and coworkers. Our Renegade Boys have their own section of our tinkering and making camps. They experience what makes Renegade Girls such a great environment for the hundreds of young engineers, scientists, and mathematicians who have joined us for summer camps and after school programs.
The Renegade Kids Tinkering Clubs run exciting summer camp programs and in San Francisco for kids 5-11 years old. From the minute our club members walk in, they are surrounded by successful, smart, trailblazing role models who encourage them to pursue their love of science, exploration and building. With gender specific camps, our kids learn in safe spaces.
Our club is offered at 10 elementary school sites in San Francisco as part of their after school enrichment programs and ever expanding for multiple days at each site. Please join our mailing list to stay apprised of our newest locations and events.
