Our Team

Our founder was kicked out of elementary school. To him, school was the thing you had to put up with in between tinkering with motors and building things in his garage. 20 years later when he started his teaching career, he realized that he had been learning all of those hours in his garage.

After being nominated for Michigan's Teacher of the Year, he wanted a way to bring hands-on learning to everyone, and CrossBraining was born. 

CrossBraining is based in Ann Arbor, MI.
