Believe in Yourself
Student confidence impacts learning and life. Students who believe in themselves and their abilities try harder, achieve more, and contribute to their learning communities.
For many students, the fear of failure is paralyzing. Rather than risking the “wrong” answer, students avoid opportunities for growth and learning. Students need supportive learning communities that embrace mistakes as a part of the learning process. Mind Missions use real-world examples highlighting the difficulties of finding functional solutions. Lessons include collaborative problem-solving opportunities that embrace setbacks as an important part of the design process.
Students must work together and offer their unique talents to achieve their mission. While working collaboratively, students discover important life strategies and grow as confident individuals.

Social and Emotional Learning is the process through which children acquire the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve goals, maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.
Through direct instruction and opportunities for practice, Mind Missions lessons encourage critical social-emotional growth in the following areas.
