Things got super nerdy at the Seattle Children’s Festival on Oct. 8 as the Big-Brained Superheroes of Yesler played with robots, typed their names in code on a punch card machine, and played with electricity. The Big-Brained Superheroes Club helps young people unleash their hidden strengths in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (STEAM). The twelve superpowers—teamwork, leadership, kindness, empathy, sense of adventure, critical thinking, adaptability, persistence, empowerment, respect, willpower, creativity—for which Big Brains are rewarded are essential to making everything they create together.
The Big-Brained Superheroes Club meets Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at the Yesler Community Center from 5:00-7:00 p.m.
