LifeLab Explorations

This class will empower students to explore their body and mind connection in a reflective way. Students will learn the basics of brain science, as they explore growth mindset, self-regulation, and the ‘control system’ of the mind. Through an understanding of diversity and inclusivity, they will develop a sense of what makes each of our life experiences unique, and how to navigate personal life choices. Physical activities will be offered that contribute to an understanding of body mechanics, physical health, and the relationship of body and mind. The basics of organization, time management, goal-setting, and skill acquisition will be taught in a way that is engaging and personalized. Take this class to put yourself in the driver’s seat of your own life!

Your Educator – Martin Derige

Martin hails from the icy, sunshiny land of Winnipeg, Manitoba, where he obtained a degree in Biosystems Engineering at the University of Manitoba. He has worked with students of all ages, from playing dodge ball in school gyms to peer tutoring sleep-deprived engineers. He teaches math, science, and chemistry, and lives for that ‘Aha! Eureka!’ moment when the kids just get it. Martin has a healthy sense of curiosity and compassion about the world and is always seeking to connect with the cool people who are part of it, like his family and friends – and the staff and students at Brain Boost! He exercises his brain with music, gaming, visual art, design, and puzzles of all types, and exercises his body through adventures like climbing, running in the woods, and day-long hikes in the mountains. He can often be found eating spaghetti.
