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!
