We are applying for six BreakoutEDU kits, which are escape room-like game kits where the students are required to use teamwork and problem solving skills, along with prior subject knowledge, to solve clues in order to "breakout" of the game before time runs out. The idea behind the kits is so versatile that teachers can make the games as simple or as complex as they want. From teambuilding icebreakers to Social Studies review games to math challenges, these kits are the perfect way for teachers to ensure student engagement and learning while the students improve their social skills, including communication, perseverance, patience, and time management. With your help, we'd love to implement this revolutionary teaching technique on a regular basis in order to maximize student engagement and learning!
