Mensa is an international society whose sole qualification for membership is a score in the top 2 percent of the general population on a standardized intelligence test. The word mensa translates “table” in Latin; similarly, mens means “mind” and mensis means “month.” The name “Mensa” is reminiscent of “mind, table, month,” which suggests a monthly meeting of great minds around a table.
Mensa members range in age from 2 to 106. They include engineers, homemakers, teachers, actors, athletes, students, and CEOs, and they share only one trait, high intelligence. To qualify for Mensa, they scored in the top 2 percent of the general population on an accepted standardized intelligence test.
Mensa 76 is the official branch of American Mensa for Fort Worth, Texas and the surrounding area (almost all parts of Texas with zip codes starting with "76"). Here is a map of Mensa 76's coverage.
We meet the 3rd Saturday of each month at the main library in downtown Arlington, unless noted otherwise.
Mensa 76 hosts a variety of events to encourage social connections with other Mensans and help stimulate the minds of our members. Non-members are welcome to attend events to meet local Mensans, learn what Mensa is about, and get a feel for the local chapter before joining.
We have been listening. So trying to accomodate more members schedules we have bumped the meetings back to 1pm. We will no longer provide lunch, instead we will offer an assortment of snacks and bottled water for you.
