Boys & Girls Club of America Summer Brain Gainhttp://www.bgca.org/braingain/Challenge, CampSummer Brain Gain engages youth in learning through discovery, creative expression, group work and a final project or production – like making sculptures from recycled objects, creating weather in a bottle or even determining their connection to President Obama. Youth develop higher-order thinking skills throughout the Summer Brain Gain modules, while staying on track for the coming school year. They leave with an increased interest in STEM subjects, particularly science.
