Hooray! This project is fully funded
Most of my students are from socioeconomically challenged families, but they do not let anything stop them. My students are diverse in backgrounds and interests but are motivated to learn and I have no doubt they are the leaders of tomorrow! We have overcome many obstacles this year with Hurricane Harvey and sharing our campus and our struggles are not over. We have many still obstacles ahead but my students only see opportunity to reach out to those in the community and better themselves in order to effect change around them.
Our world demands that people be skilled collaborators, problem-solvers, and critical-thinkers who persevere through challenges. Breakout EDU kits uses unique clues, locks, intriguing technology, and fun to have students solve complex mysteries together while enhancing communication, creativity, and critical thinking skills. Breakout EDU kits allow students to improve these skills while also learning required content aligned to standards . The materials for the Breakout Edu kits will help build necessary 21st Century Skills while stimulating students in core content areas. The campus demographic is 80% minority with 48% of the population on free and reduced lunch. Academically, our 2,338 students struggle with developing critical thinking and problem solving. Identifying this need along with developing the skills to overcome these challenges has become a campus focus.
