Explore how progress happens with the THINK exhibit app, for kids, innovators and forward thinkers.

From the very beginning, we've sought to improve the way we live. We've worked to make our world more efficient, accessible, and safe. While each leap of progress has required its own intelligence and hard work, many seem to follow a distinct, repeatable pattern.

We see how our world behaves, map what we find, understand causes and effects, believe we can create new outcomes, and act to build and improve the systems around us.

The THINK exhibit app explores how we can follow this path to address some of our most pressing challenges—from the grand to the everyday.
