Field Trips & Activities

At Brain Power we believe that excellent learning can occur in and out of the classroom. That’s why we give our students the opportunity to participate in educational field trips and activties throughout the school year!  Whether we are going to the CBC to see a taping of “The Debaters” or meet Margaret Atwood, or visiting a professional recording studio to record our own performances, or taking to the great outdoors to participate in environmental initiatives, or travelling across the country to Cape Breton to experience the diversity of our Canadian culture, Brain Power is always finding new ways to learn!

We had a blast (literally!) at the Dunlap Observatory in Richmond Hill on May 14th! The Astronuts (yes, Astro-nuts!) Space Camp was phenomenal as many students received the incredible opportunity to talk to astronauts from the ISS and participate in many educational astronomy-related afternoon activities, including hanging out at the Brain Power booth – with awesome brain puzzles, games, and more.

Our Annual Shakespeare – 2015/16

FEBRUARY 19TH, 2016

Every year Brain Power offers students the opportunity to see a live Shakespeare performance! This year the play of choice was “As You Like It,” and students went to see a National Theatre Live broadcast at the Silver City in Richmond Hill. This classic comedy tells the story of young Rosalind, who disguises herself as a man and flees the persecutions of her uncle’s court, along with her cousin Celia, to find safety and (unexpectedly!) love in the forest of Arden.

Into the Woods

JANUARY 19TH, 2016

Brain Power students attended a performance of Stephen Sondheim’s “Into the Woods” (1986) at the University of Toronto’s beautiful Hart House Theatre. Bringing together beloved and not-so-beloved characters from classic fairy tales, “Into the Woods” manages to make the familiar unfamiliar, provoking new insights out of stories we all thought we knew. Our students also got the amazing opportunity to participate in a post-show talk with the actors and director!
