Thanks for stopping by! Brain Brigade was first launched as offering schools after school programs and summer camps in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math. Since our inception, we have hosted numerous after school programs and summer camps that give students the opportunity to be hands-on with their learning.

We have branched significantly since our early days! We still offer our original after school and science programs led by veteran teacher, Jerry {and Head Brainiac at Brain Brigade!}. But now we're so excited to offer up Jerry's almost 40 years of teaching experience to other teachers through our store at Teachers Pay Teachers. That's where Jolene comes into play. Jolene is one of Jerry's daughters {he has four!}. She is a freelance graphic designer and marketing guru and works diligently on making Jerry's incredible classroom come to life for other teachers. She helps take the nuts and bolts, makes them pretty and gets them posted!

Jerry's latest classroom ventures include creating a Maker Space at his kindergarten through eighth grade school where students become inventors and engineers to make amazing creations including duct tape and cardboard boats, roller coaster track and cart that were big enough for kids to ride on, a 12-foot truss bridge, pneumatic tube system, and a full scale aquaponics lab with tilapia and greens to eat at the end of the school year!

We're a pretty awesome team. We both love education. Our entire family is very close and someone is always offering up some idea for us to work on next! When we're not working on Brain Brigade, we have similar interests. We spend a ton of time with our family (with four kids, five grandkids, and four granddogs it's almost never quiet at Grandma and Grandpa's house!).

Our families love to travel to all different parts of the world {in fact, when we were kids we almost exclusively had to go on "learning vacations" because my parents love reading and history so we always had to learn something while on vacation. I totally value those experiences now...maybe not as much as when I was younger!}.
Family vacation a few years ago...we're seriously crazy to travel together!

Mostly, we have buckets of fun while working on our Brain Brigade projects. We hope you find them enjoyable too!
