Mind Boggle programs help students discover that science, math, and
engineering can be fun by using hands-on activities that promote
critical thinking, literacy, and team work. Mind Boggle was established
to provide affordable, science, math, and engineering experiences to a
wide range of students, academically and socio-economically. Science and
math camps and grade specific programming are available for students in
kindergarten through 12th grades. Mind Boggle Programs allow students
to investigate topics in chemistry, biology and physics, sharpen their
math skills, and team up on challenging engineering design projects.
Research has shown that students (especially girls) tend to lose
interest in science and math as they progress from elementary to middle
school. Mind Boggle’s goal is to reverse this trend by keeping science
and math relevant and exciting!
