Hi Brainiacs!

Big things are happening at BrainStorm this month! We really want to kick 2016 off right, so we’re hosting three exciting special events all during the month of January. In addition to our 4:30PM – 6:30PM weekday classes, you also have an opportunity to sign up for our Code-A-Thon, Minecraft for Moms & Dads, and a Boy Scout Robotics Merit Badge Workshop.

Before I describe our special events, I should note that you can use the 25% off code for ANY of these! If you like our Facebook page you’ll find an offer you can have sent directly to your email. After you do that, come back here and read on about what we have scheduled!


Monday, January 18, 2016 | 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM | Only $99! 

Whether your child has programmed a robot to do their chores for them or has never taken a coding class, this all-day event caters to everyone. We will be fully staffed to help each child move through lessons at their own pace. We’re splitting up age groups, too: 6 – 9 and 10 – 14. We’ll delve in to coding with a sampler of our best coding classes: Scratch Programming, Minecraft University: Python Modding, Minecraft University: Robotics Programming, and more! This is an awesome opportunity to introduce your child to coding or to improve their proficiency. Like any language, programming is best learned through repetition. Please send your student with a packed lunch and a small snack (no nuts, please!).

Thursday, January 21, 2016 | 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM | $29 | Parents and educators welcome!

What is Minecraft? How does my kid join a server? Who are they playing with? Where is the Nether? Should I be worried about the “creepers”? Finally: the answers to all of your burning questions! Join us for a two-hour class covering ALL the basics! You will actually sit down at our laptops to learn how to play. We’ll then discuss the different versions of Minecraft, game modes, joining a server, creating a server, in-game violence, multi-player mini games, and more. Come prepared with your questions! Please note that this event is for adults only, and we do not have staff available for childcare.

Sunday, January 17, 2016 | 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM | $45

By popular demand: a Robotics Merit Badge workshop using LEGO MindStorms and EV3 technology! This workshop will cover everything you need to get the robotics badge, including robotics safety, the robotics industry, and general knowledge. Scouts will then design, build, program, and test a robot. We’ll finish the workshop with each Boy Scout demonstrating what he’s accomplished! A complete MindStorms EV3 kit would cost upwards of $350. This opportunity to earn the Robotics badge costs just $45 – but only here at BrainStorm on January 17th. Robotics is an incredibly exciting and dynamic field that has transformed into the premier vehicle for hands-on delivery of science, technology, engineering, and math concepts. Have your scout bring a blue card for our BSA certified counselor to sign off on.


Make sure to check out our after school schedule as well. We have TWELVE exciting classes starting this week, and spots are still open! Join us for courses like 3D Printing, LEGO Animation, Young Einsteins: STEM Lab, BattleBots, Minecraft University: DinoCraft, and more!

Thank you for reading. We hope to see you at BrainStorm soon!

To your success,

The BrainStorm Team
