This summer, the kids will join the Brain Chase Global Treasure Hunt!
Want an invitation to join us?
Brain Chase is a virtual, educational summer treasure hunt with a $10,000 grand prize!
Participants embark on a 5-week summer learning challenge to hunt for a golden treasure. By completing reading, writing and math challenges, kids are able to move forward in the hunt and gain more clues.
This summer, Brain Chase starts on June 22, 2015, when the hunt for The Sunstone of Cortés begins. Kids will log in to watch their first animated webisode and to meet Mae Merriweather, the star of the show. They will learn more about the hunt and will dive in to their first week of learning challenges.
Each week, the adverturers will have four tasks to complete: a 15-minute reading challenge, one journal entry, earn 10,000 points on Khan Academy and a bonus challenge. Once they’ve finished, they unlock the next websisode with hidden riddles, pictures and numbers to help them guess the treasure’s location.
They’ll even receive adventure tools in the mail to help them solve the riddles. Very, very cool.
The coolest part of Brain Chase? The treasure is REAL.
There is an actual golden Sunstone of Cortés and $10,000 buried somewhere on Earth. Adventurers use the clues and riddles earned through challenges to try to locate the treasure.
Every 24 hours, they can log in to enter their guess of the treasure’s location. The first adventurer to guess the location within a two-mile radius will travel with his/her family to the treasure site to claim the gold and a $10,000 grand prize scholarship!
How cool is that? I know my kids are going to have a blast with Brain Chase this summer!
