The childrenFor the young players, this is an opportunity to take part in a thrilling and challenging event that allows them to bring their personal capabilities into play, and to enjoy the pleasure and prestige of winning a thinking games competition while representing their school or country. The children gain the possibility of being part of an official competition team, which grants a sense of belonging and pride. This is also an opportunity for pupils who haven’t succeeded in proving themselves in classroom studies, to experience success in a field that requires pure thinking competence and cognitive abilities. The history of the Mind Olympics is filled with success stories of children who were considered “troublemakers” in the regular classroom setting but who brought their innate talents to the fore in the Olympics thinking games competitions.

The parents’ involvement in each event proves how highly they regard the benefits of thinking games for their children, and how important it is for them to see their offspring shine in this field.
