How is it May already?! That means the kids will be out of school in no time (just a couple weeks for some of the local schools around us). Are you ready? Do you have plans to help prevent the summer brain drain? Thanks to Brain Chase, we’re going on a summer learning adventure here at home and I can’t wait! For more information on the program, be sure to read my previous post and get an introduction to Brain Chase! Since that introductory post, there are some fun updates!!
- Dashboard Preview!! To get a feel for the system, you can use the new dashboard demo. This will give you a hands-on look at Brain Chase so you can hit the ground running when the adventure begins. You can interact with last year’s dashboard for detailed explanations about how kids’ work is tracked during the program’s five weeks.
- First peek at the actual Sunstone! The Sunstone of Cortés trophy is completed. Here you can see a video of the Sunstone being made. 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 prize will be hidden. Talk about a COOL prize!!! I LOVE the way this looks!
- Language Module Offered – Partnership with Rosetta Stone! All Brain Chase registrants will now have the opportunity to choose to participate in a language module as part of their online academic work. If selected, the language module (selecting from 30+ languages when they register) will replace the writing module. Students will be required to complete 2 lessons (a total of a little over an hour) each week in order to fulfill their language requirement and unlock the next episode. Rosetta Stone will be part of the all-inclusive pass to the best online curriculum providers that comes with Brain Chase registration.
- 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 teachers win too! You can download flyers here to share with students!
