Mind Missions was created because we believe that all students need knowledge about the past and skills for the future.
Social Studies instruction is enriched when students are given opportunities to experience the people and challenges of the past. In our lessons, students develop a deep understanding about historical people and events by constructing solutions to solve their problems. Mind Missions encourage students to interact with history as they learn it.
At the same time, Mind Missions develop skills critical for the future - encouraging creativity, developing problem solving ability, and strengthening teamwork skills.
