A bit about the Mind Lab Olympics:
The Mind Lab Olympics is an educational event that brings together children from all over the world in a fantastic championship of thinking games, which is both tremendously exciting and enjoyable. The Olympic event begins with the Mind Lab learning groups in schools and extracurricular activities, continues through regional and national playoffs, and finally culminates in the international championships. This year will be the seventh year Mind Lab Group will organize this grand event! The event will take place in the beautiful city of Sinaia, Romania.
