Get Your Nerd On!

Welcome to the world of The Big Brain Club.

We are a non-profit organization that provides free programs and resources to students, teachers, schools, and parents. We have professionally published hundreds of first-time student authors. We have donated thousands of dollars in technology to needy classrooms. And now we’re really getting ambitious.

This site is a great tool for finding (and sharing!) cool projects, videos, news, views, resources, special offers, and even funding. It’s also a broadcast platform to share your creative and academic triumphs — we want your stories, videos, awards, and whatever else you’re doing to show the world that smart is cool!

Come on in and get started!
