2021 Gedanken Institute

The 2021 Gedanken Institute for Problem Solving will be held virtually from July 12th – 16th from 1:30 pm to 4:00 pm. Since it is virtual, families are welcome to attend as a single “attendee.”

Each 2.5 hour session will start with a description of a challenging problem that will provide an excellent playing field upon which the attendees can develop the ability to think deeply to solve challenging problems.

The sessions will be coached by numerous experts in the development of problem solving skills. The coaches will encourage hard thinking and provide some general guidelines, but they can’t develop your mind for you – only you can do that.

If you have questions about the Institute, please e-mail Ed Meyer at emeyer@bw.edu.
