Tinkerspace a draw at River Valley Tech Center

Taylor Drinker likes raspberry pi - but not the kind you think. The 16-year-old Springfield High School junior loves the school's new Tinkerspace, and admits she practically lives there while school is in session.    


  1. Regional, technology sector employers have a huge demand for tinkerers.
    What a pathetic waste of formal education and valuable resources. Another self promoting spiel by the Howard Dean Tech Center attempting to compensate for few if any trade certified students graduating this spring. How about telling us job placement of tech center graduates? I wont hold my breath.

  2. Any time Bob Flint is quoted promoting something you know its a waste of taxpayer money. Grant money paid for the new technology.

    “What’s the history of Springfield? Innovation!,” said Bob Flint, executive director of the Springfield Regional Development Corp.

    It used to be innovation, Bob. Now the town is all about milking the taxpayer cow as many times and ways as possible.

  3. Where can I sign up for advanced training in magnetic bumper stickers?
