I have partnered with Brain Chase to share with you some more information on this new program to help kids stay mentally active over the summer break. I was introduced to Brain Chase a few months ago and have been working along side them to share all the fun AND beneficial information about this summer learning challenge. You can read my last two posts: Brain Chase Summer Learning Challenge and Brain Chase Online Summer Learning Adventure.
Brain Chase is an online summer learning adventure, for kids ages 7-14, that challenges them to do reading, writing, and math to unlock animated episodes that have clues to a real life buried treasure – a $10,000 college scholarship!
Below are a few common answers to the most asked about questions:
What happens when we go on vacation?
- – By registering for Brain Chase, your student is committing to do about five hours of focused online academic work each week for five weeks. Because the curriculum is web-based, he or she can complete the work whenever, wherever, and in whatever order he or she prefers.
Will it work on my computer?
- – Brain Chase is an online challenge, so you’ll need a high-speed Internet connection. It will work on the latest versions of Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome, and Safari web browsers. You will be able to complete math, language and reading assignments on tablets. (For the writing assignments, it’s recommended to have a desktop or laptop available.)
What if we miss a day?
- – Brain Chase understands falling behind – the summer can be busy. Brain Chase allows students to catch up on missed work from previous weeks (although they won’t be allowed to work ahead). You can learn more about the flexibility of the program through this post on the Brain Chase blog.
Why Brain Chase? We are already in Summer Camps.
- – Already set aside time for swim team or summer camps? No problem. Brain Chase is the perfect way to supplement the summer’s outdoor fun with positive, educational screen time – it’s not too late to sign up, and it’s flexible enough to fit any schedule. You can add it to your kids’ existing plans to round out their summer fun.
I’m a Teacher, and would love to share the program with my students!
- – Brain Chase is offering a $15 Staples gift card 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. The referral rewards can add up to substantial funding for classroom supplies – it’s a great opportunity for a class fundraiser through the PTA or other school organizations.
Do you have any special offer going on?
- – Alongside the regular pricing package ($199 for the first registration, and then $100 for each sibling), Brain Chase has now begun offering their premium pricing package ($249 for the first registration, and then $149 for each sibling). The premium package includes Brain Chase registration plus a Brain Chase-branded adventure backpack, a Brain Chase t-shirt and Sunstone of Cortés patch. Later in the summer, these items will be available for a la carte purchase.
Ready to sign up? At 9 a.m. ET on Monday, June 22, 2015, Brain Chase: The Sunstone of Cortés begins so make sure to register before then at BrainChase.com!
