01b9ecc9a086a1586e87ef11de9fd0d84bef009a9a_00001Teams at Noggin Builders are a structured program for your child to build problem solving skills, teamwork and creativity while having fun and making friendships.  He/she will also improve patience, flexibility and communication.  Combined with real-life S.T.E.M. skills we will be using to solve challenges, these are the building blocks that will help today’s children grow into tomorrow’s future leaders.

Noggin Builders manages Destination Imagination (DI) teams for grades 3-5 and 6-8.  We also offer a noncompetitive, introductory program for grades 1-2 called Rising Stars.
