Brain Chase is an online learning adventure that offers all-access passes to curated online curriculum providers for a single fee. The Summer 2016 semester will be open to students in grades 2 – 8, will kick off in late June 2016, and will run for 5 weeks. Students will be able to choose 3 electives from the following selection to work on through their personalized Student Dashboard:
- Reading (Google Books, myON or manual input)
- Math (Khan Academy)
- Writing (with Brain Chase teachers)
- Foreign Language (Rosetta Stone)
- Engineering (The Leonardo)
- Art (with Brain Chase teachers)
- Plus more electives TBA
In addition, adventurers will be required to complete one Bonus Challenge each week, resulting in a cumulative amount of about 5 hours of work a week. Completed work unlocks animated episodes of an original adventure series in which kid archaeologists from the Grayson Academy of Antiquities search for a lost buried treasure. Clues in the animations lead to the location of a real-life buried treasure buried somewhere on planet Earth, and the first individual or team to pinpoint the location of the treasure on a Google Map by deciphering the clues will receive a $20,000 travel stipend to go dig it up!
