ThinkFun Plays at the Boy Scout Jamboree

This month, ThinkFun was pleased to participate in the 2013 National Boy Scout Jamboree in West Virginia at the beautiful Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve.  Our Head of Inventor Relations Tanya Thompson joined in the fun as part of the Mind Trekkers team and shares a fun recap of the week!

 

Mind Trekkers is an outreach organization for Michigan Tech, and their STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics)-focused  booth was part of a larger section of the Jamboree called “The Cloud” or “Technology Quest.”

Scouts from all over the country had fun challenging their minds with our Life-Size Hoppers Brain game!  Using our Hoppers Construction Kit, Mind Trekkers taped out a large Hoppers grid on a tarp and displayed multiple challenges.  Scouts became the frogs and hopped their way to victory.

One thing was evident, Scouts enjoyed our puzzles!
