Mission Statement

On a mission to tap into the hidden strengths that all young people have through Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (STEAM), The Big-Brained Superheroes Club (The BBSC) at Yesler Community Center in Seattle is about community coming together to create.


A drop-in afterschool creative exploration and technical skill-building program for all ages, The BBSC meets in The BBSC lair at Yesler Community Center on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 5 to 7pm and Saturdays from 11am to 3pm. In the process of developing their own binary counter, building their own electronics learning platform, and programming their own Godzilla to attack their City of Light, Big Brains learn that their greatest power-as individuals and community members-is their ability to imagine, strive, and work together to create the world in which they want to live.

Annually, The Big-Brained Superheroes Club engages over 120 East African/Latino/Asian immigrant and refugee youth (ages two and up) living in the extremely low-income Seattle neighborhood of Yesler Terrace in drop-in afterschool creative discovery and technical skill-building. Meeting 200 times a year, The BBSC offers Big Brains over 500 STE(A)M project hours, plus adventurous learning field trips. With the skills they gain through the club, Big Brains travel to events around Seattle teaching fundamental STE(A)M concepts, such as electric circuits, binary math, and digital logic, to over 700 people a year.
