Join the FLVS Summer Brain Challenge!
Scientists have made amazing discoveries about the way our brain cells grow and form new circuits – even into adulthood. The trick to that growth is keeping them engaged by exploring new challenges and concepts.
This summer, we are challenging all of our students and their family and friends to show us what new connections your brain can make!
We’re hosting a video contest on social media asking you to show us your skills. All you have to do is share a short video of you learning something crazy and cool like this.
Whether you learn how to play the kazoo or master the art of Chinese jump rope, we want to see what you can learn over the next six weeks…
One winning entry will be selected to win 4 admission tickets to Kennedy Space Center!
Complete one or all of the following steps to get involved!
1. Post a short video clip on Vine or Instagram of you learning a new skill
Share multiple videos as you get better and better at your skill. Caption with the day/week (e.g., Learning a magic trick, Day 1) and the hashtag #FLVSBrainChallenge.
2. Challenge friends by posting a video to Vine or Instagram
Example: “I challenge [friend’s name] to do the FLVS brain challenge [and learn how to your skill/activity] this summer.” Caption should include: #FLVSBrainChallenge #upnext @yourfriendsusername.
3. Upload a single video to YouTube with separate segments/clips that have been edited together showing the full learning process step by step.
Include #FLVSBrainChallenge in the title!
Be sure to tag us at @floridavirtualschool on Instagram or @flvs on Vine!
Note: Video time limit on Vine is 6 seconds / 15 seconds on Instagram
Now go ahead. Join the #FLVSBrainChallenge!
