Brain Power's Cultural Capital Workshop
 Visited the Canadian Supreme Court!
Brain Power students who participated in our Cultural Capital and World Affairs workshop received a free remote tour of the Supreme Court of Canada!

We do our absolute best to continue to provide awesome opportunities to our students! 
The students had such a wonderful time learning about Canada’s court structure and how the Supreme Court got its power and continues to hear appeals.

What a great experience!

Thoughts on Brain Power: 

Joseph says he developed excellent abilities in problem solving, strong memory skills and a ton of confidence - and much of that has to do with his experience at Brain Power.
