"The Frustration Threshold. Every teacher I speak with nods when I talk about problem solving and use this phrase. The Frustration Threshold is the point at which a person struggling with a problem gives up. They are stuck, they can't solve the problem, they are frustrated, and they just stop working on it. Sometimes students stop trying when they are almost at a solution – but frustration sets in and they walk away…."

Virtual After School Programs

The Eureka! Virtual After School Programs

Our After School Program is designed for kids who love to play games! We currently provide two programs:

1) Strategy and Euro-style games. Using an online platform along with videochat, our instructors teach and facilitate gameplay while facilitating an environment where kids interact with each other over board games in a fun environment.

2) Dungeons & Dragons. Using A combination of paper and pencil, imagination, and videochat, our game leader, known as a "Dungeon Master" in D&D,  will both teach the mechanics of this much loved role-playing game as well as guide participants on a journey where everyone decision they make shapes the gameworld around them. 

Both programs are open to gamers aged 10 to 15 years old. When signups are active, the above links will take you to the sign up page; when signups are closed, the links will not work.
