Monthly Themes

September: Optical Illusions and Other Ways Brains Fool You

Students won’t believe their eyes as they explore optical illusions and learn the techniques behind how they fool our eyes. They’ll also learn how the same principles trick our brains into seeing or believing something that just isn’t there.

October: Demystifying Magic

Students will deconstruct the logic and technique behind magic and other tricks that both fool and delight the mind. They’ll master sleight of hand, misdirection, and an appreciation for patterns and outcomes that are much more controllable than meets the eye.

November: Cracking Codes & Tackling Trivia

What do codes and trivia questions have in common? They tend to include clues for those who know how to find them, a skill students will master as they tackle these challenges.

December: Game Theory & Strategy

Students will learn how to apply logic and psychology to win at games, create contests and challenges, and become a master of strategic thinking.

January: Riddles and Logic Games

Students will learn to answer—and create—seemingly unanswerable questions using logical deduction and an appreciation for misdirection.

February: Otherworldly Oddities

Students will explore the world of crazy-but-true facts and properties that will wow their friends and family and are bound to come up in trivia contests. Things aren’t always what they seem to be, and this month will prove that.

March: Math Mindbenders

Students will flex their numerical knowledge with collaborative puzzles from Math Olympiad and by developing strategies for number-driven games like Yahtzee, Connect Four, and more.

April: Philosophical Puzzles

Students will explore the brainteasers of Aristotle, Socrates, and more modern-day philosophers, too, as they examine age-old questions and riddles while learning to see the world logically and critically.

May: Trivia Tournament

This month is all about collaborative competition as students learn trivia, logic, and strategy while playing games and taking on trivia challenges.
