The ThinkTank Programme

The ThinkTank Programme is a system for the development and training of children’s thinking abilities and life skills. At its heart is the notion that the most effective way to learn is through a challenging, immediate and authentic experience.

Game playing is the perfect example of such an experience – it is entertaining, engaging and exciting, and therefore stimulates eager involvement. The game-playing experience provides fertile ground for the training and application of thinking abilities and life skills.

Our world seems to need more flexible thought than ever before, the ThinkTank Programme prepares our children for the future by teaching them to think for themselves, reflect and learn from their mistakes and successes, collaborate with others and to transfer their skills to other situations.
