Think Tank: Virtual Program

Think Tank registration is now open!

Think Tank is an engineering club where young minds come together to share ideas and tackle challenges. Each day, our educators will share a new problem to solve with materials around your house, and host an hour of Think Tank Time with videos, activities, and games on Zoom. Our Pay What You Can model is based in our commitment to making learning accessible and engaging for everyone!

Think Tank now available for grades K-2 select weeks at 9:30 AM
