In our increasingly complex and rapidly changing world, we must teach our students the skills they will need to meet the challenges of the future. Mind Missions lessons promote the development of critical 21st century skills. Through direct instruction and practice in inquiry and problem solving methods, students gain competence in communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity.
Mind Missions was developed by teachers and parents to prepare children for life! All students need the opportunity to engage in creative problem solving activities. Historically, these opportunities have been limited to Gifted & Talented programs and extra-curricular clubs that provided opportunities for team innovation challenges. We created Mind Missions to provide these critical problem based learning opportunities to all learners during core instructional time.
