Brain Chase brings summer camp to your door! Participants join thousands of students around the world in a race for buried treasure. Students compete in weekly academic challenges with access to premium electives. Academic challenges unlock new Brain Chase episodes, which hold clues for the real buried treasure. The first ones to correctly identify the location of the buried treasure will get to fly out to the location to dig up the treasure and claim $10,000 as a cash prize!
Brain Chase began as a simple conversation between two parents, Heather and Allan Staker. They set out to design a program that would keep their five children sharp over the summer, but then decided it would be a lot more fun to involve the entire world.
Now Brain Chase’s mission is to enrich children everywhere, one global treasure hunt at a time.
8 WEEKS OF RICH CONTENT
Whether you’re looking for ELL, SEL, STEM, Gifted & Talented, literacy, or special-needs content, look no further. Brain Chase partners with the best online learning publishers to bring your students personalized academic playlists.
EXCEPTIONAL TIME-ON-TASK RESULTS
The vast majority of Brain Chase participants complete the entire program. Over six weeks, a typical summer adventurer will log 6.4 hours of reading, study a foreign language for 4.7 hours, compose more than 4200 words in their writing journals, and earn more than 59,000 Khan Academy energy points. That’s 3.5 hours of academics each week, or more than 20 hours overall. And that doesn’t include time spent immersed in the treasure hunt!

UNPARALLELED ENGAGEMENT FOR STUDENTS, TEACHERS, AND FAMILIES
Each Brain Chase adventure wraps fun academic electives in a different animated story with a new global search for a $10,000 buried treasure. For students, this means hours of immersive research, calculations, and strategic guessing. For teachers and families, this means the opportunity to sit back and watch, or the chance to dive in as discussion leaders, elective “hosts” (i.e., yoga, art, engineering, etc.), or fellow treasure hunters.
