Created by two parents who were looking for a way to help their kids continue learning during summer, BRAIN CHASE is a clever, creative -- and, most importantly, fun -- six-week program, starting June 20, 2016 that provides both virtual and real-world payoffs. Kids will undertake weekly math and reading challenges, based on a difficulty level they feel is appropriate, and submit journal entries that teachers provide personalized feedback on. They'll also watch high-quality, engaging videos that feature a team of animated adventurers hunting for treasure -- which contain hidden clues about where an actual treasure is buried.

Kids can submit one guess every 24 hours; the one who submits the right location will be flown to it to dig up the treasure, which includes a key to a safety deposit box containing a $10,000 scholarship. With its prize money, focus on educational skills, and physical activity objects, Brain Chase could just be the solution to combating summer brain drain for students.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
