Ms. LaPointe from Oakland ME is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Breakout EDU to Challenge and Engage

My students need different types of locks and materials to complete Breakout EDU challenges.

  • $412 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

The fourth graders in my school are full of energy and come to school eager to learn. Our outstanding teachers are always looking for ways to make learning fun. Teachers constantly use their own time and money to bring materials into the classroom to engage students. Breakout EDU brings the popularity and enjoyment of the "escape room" to the classroom. We would love to give students the opportunities to work together to solve challenges and apply their learning using the Breakout EDU materials.

My Project

Our amazing fourth grade students need these Breakout EDU boxes! They are an innovative way to get students thinking critically & working together in teams. They help build collaboration, communication, and critical thinking skills. We want to provide opportunities for students to have fun while learning and reviewing content.

Our sensational students have absolutley loved using the free digital versions of the Breakout EDU materials, but they are not always aligned to what we are learning.

Having access to the Breakout boxes and locks will unlock a wealth of materials we can use to make learning more engaging and FUN!
