  • The Think Tank is an active laboratory where all students go to work with hands-on math activities and science experiments. The emphasis is on developing higher level thinking skills and broadening the scope of learning for all students in grades Kindergarten through sixth.

    The idea for the Think Tank (formerly known as the NEST) was developed in 1991 by a committee of parents and teachers. The PTA continues to be comitted to the success of the lab. New equipment and technology is added annually through the generous support of the NHE PTA.

    All students have the opportunity to visit this hands-on, self-directed STEM enrichmment lab. No grades are given; this is a place for students to explore, to learn, make mistakes, and hopefully find a passion for science and math. The first semester is set up for grades fourth through sixth and the second semester is for grades K through 3rd. Small math enrichment groups (1st  6th) come all year long.
