The Brainfinity education model, designed and launched by the LINK edu Alliance, has been shortlisted among the top 100 educational innovations in the world, making Brainfinity yet another Alliance service whose quality has been internationally recognized.
The selection was made by HundrED, a renowned organization which focuses on educational innovations around the world and promotes the most promising ones. It is a great honor for Brainfinity to be among the most innovative ideas in the world that set the course for education at a global level.
What is Brainfinity and what makes it special?
Brainfinity is an innovative problem solving competition for elementary and high school students from all around the world, and a unique concept that has completely changed the way we perceive science. Four-member teams compete in solving problems designed in the style of well-known mysteries.
Problems are solved from different locations, which particularly inspires students by creating a positive attitude towards learning and problem solving. By moving them out of the classroom, logical tasks become more exciting and integrate logical thinking into real-life situations, which allows children to practice and implement their knowledge and skills. Therefore, Brainfinity is a significant step forward when it comes to creating a diverse, dynamic and modern world of education.
