I was so thrilled to introduce you all to Brain Chase earlier this Spring.
As a reminder, we as a family are going on a Brain Chase. Brain Chase is a 5-week online summer learning challenge disguised as a HUGE global treasure hunt for 2nd through 8th graders. Each summer, a golden mechanical treasure will be buried somewhere on earth – and it will contain the key to a safety deposit box holding a $10,000 college scholarship fund. Participants who complete an hour of online summer learning activities each day will unlock secret animated webisodes that hold the clues to the treasure’s whereabouts. Pinpoint the treasure’s location first, and you’ll be the one on a plane to dig it up!!
I’ve already signed my kids up and my 10 year old has asked me DAILY when the Summer Challenge begins! I kid you not. She is ready to find the Sunstone of Cortes! Brain Chase just released their first sneak peek at the actual Sunstone. It is about 12 inches in diameter and has mechanically rotating components that open to reveal the center compartment, where the key to retrieve the $10,000 will be hidden!
Brain Chase starts on June 22, 2015 and continues with 5 weeks of structured challenges on reading and math websites, weekly writing exercises, and exclusive access to an original animated adventure series loaded with hidden puzzles and clues. You and your children participate in a massive global treasure hunt for the big prize of a lifetime!
Each week the adventurers have 4 tasks to complete – a reading task, a writing entry, math points, and a bonus challenge(typically 4-5 hours of total weekly work). When they are done, they unlock the next webisode which contains hidden pictures, numbers, and riddles to help them guess the treasure’s location! The webisodes are so cool as they travel around the world exposing your kids to even more cool adventures! And don’t worry if you are going on your own adventure or to camp during this time – as Brain Chase allows you to make-up your work at anytime during the 5 weeks!
There are a few new and exciting announcements surrounding this Summer’s Learning Adventure to share – One is that Brain Chase has partnered with Rosetta Stone! All Brain Chase registrants will now have the opportunity to chose to participate in a language module as part of their online academic work. Students will be allowed to choose from 30+ languages when they register! This is truly amazing and just deepens the global studies aspect of Brain Chase!
The next new piece of Brain Chase is a teacher referral reward program. Brain Chase is offering $15 to teachers for each of their students they refer to Brain Chase. Registrants who hear about Brain Chase from a teacher can simply enter that teacher’s name and school name at registration. Kids fight summer brain drain to win a treasure – and now teachers win too! You can download flyers to share with your students here!
And if you child is like mine and is counting down the days until the Brain Chase adventure begins(44 days to be exact), well you can check out the new dashboard demo for a hands on look at Brain Chase and interact with last year’s dashboard for detailed explanations about how your kids’ work is tracked during the program’s five weeks.
Now is the time to register and get ready for some family fun, adventure, and learning!
