Weekly Club Meetings
Your young scholar will join a cerebral crew to stretch their mind through expert-led demonstrations and challenges sure to indulge their curiosity. Each month features a new brain-twisting theme. Throughout the year, club members will explore riddles, codes, game theory, and end the year in a trivia tournament.
Bonus Clubhouse Activities
It’s amazing how many puzzles and riddles exist around the house and in nature. As a club member, your student will have access to fun online and offline activities through our online After School Clubhouse. The Clubhouse has videos, quizzes, fun downloadable experiences—everything they need to become expert critical thinkers!
When you register for this club, your camper will be invited to our upcoming live Brainteasers StarCourses. They’ll learn how to use their critical thinking skills in new ways from our featured guest stars.
