Each step of the process is distinct, and they all occur in an ongoing cycle:


Parents and caregivers can see Think, Make, TrySM in action on-site by joining one of BADM’s daily drop-in programs with their child. For teachers, Think, Make, TrySM is also incorporated into all of the school programming that BADM offers throughout the Bay Area, and NGSS-alignment is seamlessly built in.
