Increasing the Frustration Threshold: Making Better Problem Solvers

"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…."

The above is an excerpt from a paper presented at a mathematics conference a few years ago. The notion articulated is that individuals can improve their ability to solve problems through a program that both illuminates different ways to think about problems and improves self confidence in the ability to solve problems.

After School Programs

The Eureka! After School Programs - back in person!

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

1) Strategy and Euro-style games. 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 strategy, 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.
