Ms. Roth from San Gabriel CA is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Breaking Out...to Break Into Learning!

My students need the Breakout EDU kits to provide them with real-world critical thinking puzzles and challenges, think of an "escape room" with educational content, to build creativity, collaboration, communication, and critical thinking.

My Students

Critical thinkers, problem solvers, communicators, and collaborators; these are the words that describe the creative and dedicated students at my school. More than half of the students are from low-income households and many are from recent immigrant families. A large portion of students are English Language Learners and acquire learning best through hands-on experiences.

The students rise to any challenge they are presented with, regardless of the circumstances or constraints that may be in their path.

They love tinkering and creating new solutions to real-world problems. Our students are young innovators who learn from each other, their trials, failures, and successes. They know that learning comes from reflecting on what works and what doesn't. I can't wait to see how they continue to grow as scientists, engineers, mathematicians, and technologists, both now and as OUR future leaders.

My Project

Breakout EDU kits are similar to "escape rooms" but have educational content and clues that are relevant to a variety of subjects. The Breakout Kit includes the box, a variety of locks (word, numerical, direction,etc.), various "detective" tools (such as black lights), and digital access to hundreds of pre-designed Breakout EDU games. Although the material in each kit stays the same, the content and clues to build student problem solving is novel for each experience. Once you have the kit, the experience that students have is unique and endless.

With Breakout EDU kits, students need to collaborate and use critical thinking skills to successfully solve the clues and open the myriad of locks in order to BREAKOUT!

The Breakout EDU experience not only allows students to access content in new and exciting ways, but literally pushes them to think outside the box, in order to open the locked box... ultimately, opening their mind to thinking creatively and critically, while in teams!
