Why Spend Spring Break 2020 With Us?

What makes Spring Break so different at BB?

One thing you’ll notice is that the space is especially quiet and focused. With everyone on break from school, there is less hubbub which provides a more focused, tranquil space for students to lock in to their studies for an afternoon, morning or a whole day. If you’re looking to catch up on course work or learn something new, we’re committed to creating an environment that will help you do just that!

Which students would benefit from SB?

Anyone! If you’re behind on your coursework, Spring Break can be a crucial time to bring yourself up to date with the rest of your classmates while also fitting in a preview for what’s coming down the road. No matter how far behind you are, our mind-dump specialists in tutoring and Study Space can help you devise a plan of attack for the week. If you’re not sure what you need to work on, but you want to keep your brain active, come on in! We’re experts at creating custom learning paths for anyone and everyone.

What kind of fun things are happening over SB at BB?

In addition to our regular tutoring and study space services, we’re offering condensed classes in Animation, Video Game Design, Digital Art and Dungeons & Dragons campaigns for all experience levels! We always plan for games and de-stressers hosted throughout the day to help break up the work and yummy treats to help push those dedicated students through their studies over the break period. In addition, Spring Break will see our salmon eggs grow into little alevins, getting closer to their graduation date when they’re released at Spanish Banks creek. We’ve got a great crew of staff excited to bring a fun, yet focused vibe to Brainboost this Spring Break. 

Here are some of the classes we offered last year!

Check back February 1st to see what we have in store for Spring 2020

Animation comes in many forms: stop motion, claymation, drawing cell by cell, flip books, zeotropes, merging CGI with real video or making a fully animated CGI film. The goal of the course is to teach the basics of all techniques and then encourage students to become masters of their chosen tools. With many animation studios opening in Vancouver this is a great way to set yourself up for a satisfying future career. Peter will guide students through the material in a kind and flexible way, accommodating all types of learners.
