Gever Tulley is an American writer, speaker, computer scientist, and founder of the Brightworks School and Tinkering School. His most recent work centers around the concept of students learning through building projects. He has delivered a TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) talk on his work, published the book 50 Dangerous Things (You Should Let Your Children Do), and has contributed articles for many online media outlets.

A self-taught software engineer, Tulley created the summer program called Tinkering School in 2005. The Tinkering School's program provides children with a week-long overnight experience at a ranch outside of San Francisco, California. Participants spend the week building large projects such as a working roller coaster, a rope bridge made out of plastic bags, and a 3-story tree house.

Tulley delivered a talk at the TED2007 conference entitled "5 Dangerous Things You Should Let Your Kids Do". In this talk, Tulley makes the argument that a growing trend towards over-protection of children is harming their ability to learn and think. Thus, Tulley advocates for parents to allow their children to do supervised activities that are considered to be dangerous such as driving a car or playing with fire. By doing so, Tulley believes children will learn concepts that they may not learn in more structured and conventional activities. Tulley has since given further TED conference talks at TED2009 and various TEDx conferences.

In 2011, Tulley opened the Brightworks School in San Francisco, California. The school expands upon the premise of his summer program, and students from grades K-12 learn through hands-on activities facilitated by adult "collaborators". The school opened in September 2011 with an initial enrollment of 30 students. The school follows a curriculum called the "Brightworks Arc" which has three phases: exploration, expression, and exposition.
