Helping Kids Better Problem Solve and Think Out of the Box Solutions
Now is the time for Think Out of the Box Solutions!
Do you suffer from the dreaded Stuck in the Hole Thinking? It can cause rashes, insomnia, headaches, frowns, and Tunnel Vision. What is Stuck in the Hole Thinking, you ask? When faced with a problem you can’t solve, do you give up? See only from the viewpoint of the hole in the floor and only see the walls inside the hole? Your thoughts speak of how it can’t work, it won’t work, with no solutions offered, only seeing problems.
A visit to the Idea Emporium is your cure! There’s a magical mall with its entrance in an abandoned mall, which caters to the magical beings of the world. It's also a place where new solutions are born. I’m Ronni, the Manager of the Idea Emporium. I visited one day and the crows convinced me I was desperately needed, so I never left. Now I can share its wonder and magic with others who need it.
Welcome to this new e-learning based program that teaches better problem solving and creative thinking through design-based, fun activities.
