Turn your classroom into a 21st century classroom.
ThinkFun’s award-winning games, brainteasers and puzzles help stimulate crucial brain development in logic, visual/spatial, math, language, focus and reasoning, preparing kids for a world that revolves around STEM skills. Plus, our games are fun to play and can easily be incorporated into your everyday teachings – before, during and after class.
As the world (and teachers) continue to focus more around math, engineering, coding and creativity, we continue to create more games that will help inspire learning through play.

Learning games that really work!
One thing we hear all the time from concerned educators is: “I know my students will enjoy playing the games, but will they really benefit from them?” The answer is simple: YES!
In 2012, we teamed up with Mary Cay Ricci, author of Mindsets in the Classroom, to put our games to the test. Five specially selected games – ShapeOmetry, Chocolate Fix, Brick by Brick, Rush Hour and Math Dice Jr – were given to 53 2nd and 3rd grade classrooms within the Montgomery County School District in Maryland. In as little as a month, teachers starting seeing results – underperforming students were showing great potential and students who were functioning below grade level were improving their reasoning skills. After seven months, the success was even greater! Reasoning skills jumped as much as 21 percentile points, and students’ confidence and determination to succeed flourished. The teachers loved seeing their students learning through play, and students loved playing ThinkFun games.
We love making the grade with teachers and students! And we look forward to helping you turn your classroom into a 21st century classroom.
