In existence for more than 15 years, Brainobrain has trained thousands of children in the concept of Abacus and smart calculation. These skills help them in solving arithmetic problems with speed and accuracy which keeps the young brains alert, active and focus better, think quicker and improve memory. This annual Brainobrain event aspires to become a platform that encourages overall development of children, boost their confidence and offer them a truly global exposure.
