Tinkering with Imagination

J K Rowling said in her address at the Harvard Commencement in 2008:

Imagination is not only the uniquely human capacity to envision that which is not, and therefore the fount of all invention and innovation. In its arguably most transformative and revelatory capacity, it is the power that enables us to empathise with humans whose experiences we have never shared.

Gever Tulley builds upon the imagination that kids have in his Tinkering School.

Do you let your kids tinker?

How do you feed your imagination?
