Our mission is to prepare minds for the 21st century

Social Studies instruction is enriched when students are given opportunities to experience the challenges of the past. In our lessons, students develop a deep understanding about historical people and events. Students construct solutions to solve real-world problems. Mind Missions learning encourages students to interact with history as they learn it.

At the same time, students develop skills critical for the future. Mind Missions learning strengthens creativity and innovation. Students gain problem-solving skills as they work to develop unique solutions to real-world problems. Communication is essential to mission success. Students learn to communicate effectively with team members throughout the learning experience. They also gain presentation skills as they communicate their solutions to the class. Using Mind Missions lessons, students develop strong teamwork skills. They learn to think critically and effectively. Creativity, Collaboration, Communication and Critical thinking are the 4 Cs of 21st century learning. These 21st century skills are essential for the future success of our students. 

Using Mind Missions lessons, students gain essential skills for the future while learning powerful lessons about their world. Lessons from the Past. Skills for the Future. This is our mission.

Mind Missions was created because we believe that all students need knowledge about the past and skills for the future.

Who We Are

Mind Missions was created by teachers and parents who believe that quality curricular materials support teachers and improve student learning.  We develop project-based learning programs that blend STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) challenges with historical examples. 

Through our learning systems, students use the creative design process to turn problems into solutions. They learn critical skills in the process including:

  •      Creativity
  •      Collaboration
  •      Critical Thinking and Problem Solving
  •      Communication
  •      Confidence
  •      Risk-Taking
  •      Perseverance
