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 problem based learning curriculum for all learners during core instructional time. Mind Missions started as a product for Texas schools but is now available for most states and is aligned with each state’ standards.
