Crossett Brook Middle School is seeking volunteers from the community to help with Brainado.  Brainado is a program CBMS started in 2016. Students explore and discover a topic of their interest by participating in their own projects.  This video shows some examples from past projects.  This video shows some examples of students working with mentors.

Brainado will be happening at CBMS on: March 28, April 11, April 25, May 2, May 9.  7th and 8th graders will work on Brainado from 9:30 - 11:30AM.  5th and 6th graders will work on Brainado from 12:30 - 2:30PM.  Students will present at a May 'Sharenado',  and the community will be invited - stay tuned for details!

Want to help and be a resource for a CBMS student? There are many options! You could help them with their projects by coming in to consult, being available for questions through e-mail, or you can meet students at your place of work or through video calls.  Interested?  Please fill out this form and we will be in touch.

Thank you for your consideration!  The CBMS Brainado Student Planning Team
