Why Choose Mind Missions?

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.
