Rush Hour Featured in Scientific American

Scientific American Mind Magazine is dedicated to innovations in brain science. My geeky heart skipped a beat when I opened the new May/June issue… and saw Rush Hour! This iconic ThinkFun logic puzzle was featured in a piece on brain training games that have a proven effect on improving the way children’s brains work.

    I have used Rush Hour in my class for years! I LOVE this game and so do my students. :)

  • Thrilled to hear it, Tanya! I’d love to hear how you use the game in the classroom – is is part of free play or used in a more targeted way as part of your math or thinking skills curriculum?
