THE BIG BRAIN THEORY: PURE GENIUS searches for America's brightest, boldest, out-of-the-box thinkers and pits them against one another in seemingly impossible engineering challenges. Host Kal Penn tasks competitors with building secure yet portable bunkers, triathlon-competing robots, and more. The winner will receive $50,000 and a one-year job contract.
With 8 episodes provided by Discovery Education, students are asked to brainstorm and describe in detail how they would complete the challenge depicted on the screen. This is a very easy to use worksheet for even your lowest of learners to your very brightest. Students will be motivated to compare their idea's (Blueprints) to those of the contestants. Students love trying to guess who will go home and what the next challenge might be.
