Our Mission:

Build a kinder, nerdier, more imaginative world.

The Big-Brained Superheroes Club is on a mission to tap into the hidden strengths that live within all young people, such as kindness and critical thinking, through the exploration of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM).


The Program

The Big-Brained Superheroes Club, an after-school program at Yesler Community Center in Seattle, WA, encourages Big Brains to build valuable skills in essential fields including Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM). Through the visualization and creation of their own works of art and science, Big Brains learn how to consider both how and why the world works and how to make it better. Combined with Real-Life Superpowers like Teamwork, Leadership and Kindness, Big Brains become mighty forces for good in their community and in the world!

Learn More About Us

The Big-Brained Superheroes Club provides me with a community within a community— a place where I can grow and explore the impossible, or what I thought to be impossible.
