A few months ago, I filled you in on the Brain Chase experience. A 5 week summer learning challenge that includes a real $10,000 treasure hunt and activities that will keep your kids sharp and motivated.
Well it’s coming! Soon! And I have some new fun details to share with you about the event.
Beginning on June 22nd, 2015 at 9am EST, the Brain Chase summer learning challenge will begin. Children all around the globe will log into the Brain Chase dashboard to watch the first animated webisode and meet Mae Merriweather, the star of the show.
The hunt for the Sunstone isn’t just fiction – there is a real golden Sunstone of Cortés and $10,000 buried somewhere on Earth. Every 24 hours, adventurers can log in to enter their guess of the treasure’s location. The first adventurer to guess the location within a two-mile radius travels with his/her family to the treasure site to claim the gold.
The Trophy is Ready!
The construction of the Sunstone of Cortes has been completed! Somewhere on this earth, one lucky child will dig up a trophy that is 12 inches in diameter. With a few twists of the Sunstone’s mechanically rotating components, the center will reveal the compartment where the key to retrieve the $10,000 prize.

Brain Chase Partnership with Rosetta Stone
Brain Chase has partnered with Rosetta stone to allow participants the opportunity to choose a language module as part of their online academic work.
If the language module is selected, the child will be required to complete 2 weekly lessons in order to fulfill their language requirement and unlock the next episode. If completed, this should average out to a little over an hour of work each week.
