Northwood Elementary School sixth-grader to appear Wednesday on Nick’s ‘BrainSurge’


IUSD NewsFlash just received word that a Northwood Elementary student is set to appear Wednesday night on a fast-paced Nickelodeon game show.

Claire Berger, a sixth-grader at Northwood, will compete on BrainSurge, which starts at 6 p.m., according to Principal Stuart Payne

We’re not all that familiar with how the show works, but here’s a brief description from the BrainSurge webpage:

Warning: Watching this show may make your brain explode. Hold on to the couch while you watch kids compete in quick-moving, mind-bending challenges. Host Jeff Sutphen guides the competitors through three levels of challenges. One wrong answer could mean a trip down the Brain Drain. Or a Face Wall suck. Kids who are eliminated do not leave empty-handed, but the winner gets the ultimate prize … a gigantic, messy, victory Sliming!

 Sounds intense. Best of luck, Claire!
