Billionaire’s Invitation

Billionaires Invitation


A reclusive Billionaire has conquered the business world and is now fixated on another obsession – trying to find the ancient treasure of Oak Island. Over the years she has put together dozens of teams with navigational, historic and archeological expertise to try and find it – but they have all come up short. The only items they have found are a bunch of indecipherable ancient scrolls. In a last ditch effort, she has determined that since adults have lacked the creative, logical and collaborative thinking needed to succeed, she is forming a new type of group that might think differently – made up of kids aged 8-14.

Do you have what it takes to make the team? And if so, can you help her find the treasure? You’ll need to work as a team, analyze information, make decisions and solve challenges to find where X marks the spot. But be careful, there may be a few twists along the way…

Join Billionaire’s Invitation for a 3-week live, online learning adventure. Sessions are led by a braintrain conductor who receives messages from the Billionaire at key points along the journey to guide the way. Billionaire’s Invitation is braintrain’s introductory venture.

Sessions are in small groups of 4-6 learners. View availabilities below.
