Brain Chase Productions is excited to announce the launch of their first Texas Edition of the seven-week online summer learning challenge and treasure hunt. The Texas challenge will run concurrently with the returning Global Edition, both beginning June 19, 2017, for children ages 6-16. The winner of the challenge will receive a scholarship worth $10,000, a trip to the treasure’s location, and the buried treasure itself. Parents can register their students now for either edition at www.brainchase.com.
You can watch a video of the most recent winning family (from the fall Brain Chase challenge) as they traveled to Fairbanks, Alaska, to unearth the treasure. https://www.youtube.
Brain Chase seeks to combat summer learning loss with a daily dose of challenging yet entertaining academic work. With the assistance of learning partners like Rosetta Stone, Khan Academy, Code Combat, and Typing Club, Brain Chase now provides participants access to activities in 15 different electives—from math, writing, and reading to language, engineering, and art. Participants will complete weekly learning challenges in these electives, tailored to individual ability, to unlock online webisodes of an exclusive animated series, which contain hidden clues to the location of a real life buried treasure.
The Brain Chase Texas Edition will function similarly to the global treasure hunt, which is now in its fourth year, except that the golden artifact is instead buried somewhere within the state of Texas. In the Global Edition, the treasure could be hidden anywhere on earth. And anyone can participate in either challenge.
“We are so thrilled to kick off the Brain Chase Texas Edition for the very first year,” says Brain Chase Co-Founder and CEO Allan Staker. “Brain Chase continues to be a valuable tool in providing students with a learning adventure throughout the summer. We wish all participants the best of luck in their treasure hunt. But remember, learning is the real treasure.”
Here’s how it works: Participants will log onto Brain Chase each week and complete roughly four hours of customized online and offline assignments in their electives. Once their weekly challenges are complete, the next animated webisode is unlocked, allowing students to follow Mae Merriweather on her quest to locate a golden treasure and uncover clues to the location of missing adventurer Tate Grayson. Each webisode contains hidden clues, puzzles, and riddles, and participants can also receive tools in the mail from Brain Chase to help them decipher the clues. The first participant to complete the seven-week challenge and guess the treasure’s location within a 2-mile radius will win a $10,000 scholarship, and will travel with a parent to the actual secret location to unearth the real treasure, and take it home.
Registration is open now for both the Texas and Global Editions to children ages 6–16. You can choose between various learning packages, including Scout ($69), Explorer ($149), or Adventurer ($229). Each package includes different access to a selection of subjects and much more, but the core math, reading, typing, and service subjects remain in each.
