A mind is a terrible thing to waste; fortunately, there’s Brainteasers club to put your young thinker’s brain to use through mind-bending logic puzzles, collaborative trivia challenges, Socratic critical thinking exercises, and more.

Each month, young scholars will join their cerebral crew to stretch their minds in a new direction through expert-led demonstrations and challenges sure to indulge their curiosity while sharpening their brains.

September: Optical Illusions & Other Ways Your Brain Fools 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 — This month, 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 & Logic Games — Students will learn to answer—and create—seemingly unanswerable questions using logical deduction and an appreciation for misdirection.

February: Otherworldly Oddities — This month, 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 — This month, 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.
