Have you thought about summer learning for your kids? I know, I know…it’s only March. But I just looked at our calendar and the end of the 3rd quarter is next week. Summer will be here before you know it.
I’m not big on making my kids do worksheets all summer long. I do believe that kids need time to be free and have adventures. That’s why I was very curious and excited about Brain Chase when I first learned about it. I was skeptical at first, but after hearing more about it, I can’t wait to get my kids started. This is very different. It’s more of an adventure that uses learning as the tool to discover more adventure.
What is Brain Chase?
Brain Chase is a 5 week online learning adventure for kids in 2nd through 8th grade. It is a treasure hunt where kids read, write and do math to progress through the adventure. This helps prevent the summer brain drain. The adventure is personalized for each child as they hunt for a golden mechanical treasure.
The prize? $10,000 scholarship and a trophy
Here is a video that shows you how the game works.
Now doesn’t that look like loads of fun?
The Nitty Gritty Details for Your Summer Learning Adventure
Starts at 9:00 am ET on Monday, June 22, 2015. It begins with an animated webisode where you’ll meet Me Merriweather, the star of the Brain Chase game.
Find the buried treasure which is a real Sunstone of Cortés and $10,000. Every 24 hours, the adventurers can log in and enter a guess. The first one to guess the location within a two-mile radius will travel with their family to claim the prize.
Here is another video about the 2015 challenge:
The Brain Chase was started by a husband and wife team, Allan and Heather Staker, after trying to figure out how to keep their five kids from suffering the summer learning loss. They wanted to create an academic challenge that kids would love. Allan remembered a book he had read in second grade, Masquerade by Kit Williams and that book sparked the Brain Chase.
