Summer Fun Classes
Animation (link): comes in many forms: stop motion, claymation, drawing cell by cell, flip books, zoetropes, 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.
3D Video Game Design (link): Gamers and designers will craft their own 3D worlds and characters to bring their game ideas to life in their very own first person world. We will construct places in Sketchup, design characters in Sculptris, animate characters in Blender and build the game in Unity. This course is visually based with very little coding to allow for those that favor style and design. Let the games begin. Peter will guide students through the material in a kind and flexible way, accommodating all types of learners.
Manga & Anime (link): In this summer pod, we’ll look at the history and style of Japanese manga and anime, and break down the differences found in some of our favourite stories! We’ll look at My Hero Academia, Miyazaki’s Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, and others! Most importantly, though, we’ll read some manga, watch some anime, and have fun! Matt will guide students through the material in a kind and flexible way, accommodating all types of learners.
Snack Attack (link): Cool treats and summer eats! Cool off with these fun, and tasty summer classics. Together, we will make: Strawberry slushies, ice cream cookie sandwiches, corn dogs, cheeseburger sliders, and honey garlic chicken wings! Dietary restrictions will be accomodated, and menu may change depending on the interests of the students. We’ll learn basic cooking and kitchen skills with a professional chef, Rachel Lovick, who is experienced and skilled in accommodating all types of learners.

I chose to do math at BrainBoost because I wanted to get it done and over with. The class was great, as everyone helped each other, and it was a supportive environment. We all became friends, and I was most surprised by the commitment from everyone in the class. At BrainBoost, they have awesome teachers who can teach you one-on-one a lot because the classes are small. My favourite part was meeting people like me determined to do math.Andrew
The minute I walked in my first class that morning, Michaela [my teacher], was like sunshine – she just hit! I came into Summer Math thinking, ” I’ll pass this by 52%”. I got my first test done, and I was like WHOA! “Anything above 73%, and I’m good”, and I ended up getting a class average of 84%, which I could’ve never imagined! …. It was a lot of work, but it was fun too, because Michaela and Yeasir are great teachers.Raidah
