This week’s Brainypics theme is: Brainypics About Brainypics
We got this idea from some really funny users. Basically, you create Brainypics with sentences that refer to other Brainypics, you as the creator, the Brainyflix website, etc. We want you to get "self-referential".
Why participate? Because between now and Dec. 7, we'll be picking 5 Brainypics vocab flashcards every week which will compete for our $200 Grand… Continue

Thus far, we’ve accepted images from everywhere so long as you document the source. But this week, the students are the source!
For Week 7 of our Brainypics contest, we want their funniest photos of just about anything: their uncle Mort sweating it up on the dance floor, a mobile pic they took of you stuffing your face in the cafeteria... whatever. Just be original and have fun with it.
Get started and go to… Continue

Good job, everybody! Your students created over 540 Brainypics last week, which beat the previous record by about 100 pics. Wow. And we were quite impressed by those students who were up for the challenge of imagining fake conversations. Clearly, they are as crazy as we are, if not moreso. Hahaha.
Here are 5 words to help on the SAT & ACT courtesy of our very deserving winners. Enjoy!…

For week 6, we are asking for Brainypics where the sentence is what somebody is saying in an imaginary conversation that is happening in the picture. Just as you pick the word, picture and sentence, you get to come up with the conversation, too. The sillier, the better, of course. :]
A little confused? Here are some examples I came up with to help you in your kids in their quest for iTunes and those dolla dolla billz.…

We want to celebrate Halloween, Brainyflix-style. We're looking for Brainypics with tricks, treats, great costumes (not so great costumes), pumpkin carving, candy gobbling & more.
We'll pick the 5 best Brainypics submitted between Monday and Sunday at noon to compete for our cash prize. Even if your kids don't get picked, remember that they can earn an iTunes song for every 5 Brainypics they create. We have plenty of gifts to go around, so spread the word and get started at… Continue
