MindAntix develops programs to make students creative and better problem solvers.
MindAntix provides all students with the opportunity to build creativity and problem-solving skills through access to fun, simple, and practical activities and exercises that are easy for teachers to implement and use, along with professional development and continuing support to help teachers fuel students’ growth. Through project based learning and cognitive skill-building strategies, MindAntix is working to equip students to be successful contributors to the rapidly-evolving workforce of the future in a technology-driven, AI-dominated world.
The mission of MindAntix is to lead a creativity movement by providing educators with easy-to-implement resources and support to help all learners build their 21st century success skills in a fun, collaborative, and practical learning environment.
Our vision is a workforce of the future that is equipped with the necessary skills -- including creativity, critical thinking, and problem solving -- to succeed in a rapidly-evolving, technology-driven, AI-dominated world.
All students have the potential to become creators of the future. We aim to prepare them.
MindAntix was founded in 2012 with the goal of building a cognitive creativity movement, and we continue that mission today.
By 2030, futurists predict that one out of three jobs will be replaced by automation. But with the right skills, the workforce can be transformed rather than displaced by technology. That’s where we come in. MindAntix equips students to be successful contributors and creators who have the skills to thrive in the technology-driven future of work.
We give students the space to explore new ideas and teach them how to explore novel and useful ideas within that space.
With MindAntix, students and teachers participate in a shared experience as they explore novel problems and learn from each other’s ideas. Creativity isn’t just coming up with something new, but also understanding context to develop that idea into something meaningful and useful. Our real world, relevant strategies support this skill development.
Through our cognitive brainteasers, students learn specific thinking styles that are proven to build creative thinking and develop a growth mindset. These concepts are put into action through the project based learning modules that challenge students to apply newly-learned strategies in real world scenarios.
We make teaching and learning simple, practical, and relevant for everyone in the classroom.
MindAntix gives teachers the resources and support to make instruction relevant for students and give them the opportunity to not just “be creative,” but to truly create by engaging in problem-solving and innovation. Through a combination of collaborative projects and solo assignments, students develop their own unique ideas within the shared experience of a community.
All assignments include simple, straightforward guidelines that give students the freedom to tackle challenges without navigating a complicated structure. The modules are easy for teachers to implement, making it realistic and practical to incorporate activities into classroom instruction.
Teachers use our online portal to assign, track, and evaluate students’ submissions. While there are no wrong answers in creative thinking, our rubric helps teachers evaluate students’ understanding of particular thinking styles by using Guilford's four-part metric system to measure fluency, flexibility, originality, and elaboration.
A shout out to our amazing students and their ideas, some of whom have won national and state level awards through our program. Check out some of their profiles on our inventor spotlight series.
