What’s a parent who wants to keep their child learning this summer minus the whining to do? Consider the Brain Chase summer learning program.
Check out my first Brain Chase post to get the deets on this online summer learning challenge during which kids will try and find the Sunstone of Cortés and win a $10,000 prize. And to get an even better sense of this program the video below is the official Brain Chase 2015 trailer for The Sunstone of Cortés and explains how the program works.

#1 Focus on flexibility. To help parents who might be worried that registering for Brain Chase this summer isn’t feasible – because their kids will be attending overnight camps, traveling on a family vacation or participating in other activities – here are some details you can share on the program’s flexibility to reassure them:
#2 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.
#3 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.)
#4 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).
#5 You can learn more about the flexibility of the program through this post on the Brain Chase blog.
#6 Supplemental summer activity. Got your summer camps all lined up already? Already set aside time for swim team? 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.
#7 Teacher referral reward program. 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.
#8 Premium pricing package update. 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.
#10 Make it personal! In addition to the talking points, don’t forget to share your thoughts – and your child(ren)’s – on the beginning of the summer learning challenge! Consider “interviewing” your kids for some fun quotes, capturing their thoughts and excitement on video or providing your own feedback on why you think Brain Chase might be an educational game changer in your household this summer.
