Breaking Out of Traditional Education With Breakout Edu

My students need two Breakout EDU kits and Platform access codes. I will conduct Breakout EDU on Fridays with my students. Since my classes will consist of approximately 25 students, I am trying to obtain two.

My Students

My students are coming from 33 elementary schools for their chance at a unique learning opportunity. We are "breaking the mold" on traditional learning. Our students will be working collaboratively and "getting their hands dirty" with participating in Project Based Learning.

On Fridays we will be conducting mixed grade level STEAM projects.

Since we are conducting mixed grade level STEAM days, this project has the ability to reach 200 students. Help me challenge these amazing young minds to think outside the box.

My Project

By getting two kits from Breakout Edu, my students will be able to take part in weekly breakout sessions where they review curriculum in a nontraditional way. With Breakout Edu kits, I will be ready to start this program within a week. Doing so will give more students to chance to take part in my Breakouts.

This is a way to reach students on a whole new level.

Having them pace, rely, and trust each other will empower each one of them to be a productive citizen in our classroom and the hope is for that ideal to stay with them into adulthood. Please help me show my students that life is going to challenge you to think critically about given circumstances.
