My Students

My 7th and 8th grade students in Flint, MI are amazing and have a desire to learn and explore. They come into my STEM class eager to get busy designing, creating, and making. They are willing to try out new tools and technology.

They have endured many challenges in our community and that has given them a sense of empathy for the need to create new solutions to challenges.

They teamwork together to utilize the technologies, materials, and devices to not just learn but to design and create new things. They love to share and showcase their projects and creations with each other, adults in and out of our school, and with the world.

My Project

Breakout Edu kits will allow my students to learn in a highly engaging, team oriented, and non-traditional format. They will be challenged to solve together various clues and hints in order to unlock boxes to get more hints that will help solve the final locked container. There are tons of educational topics that have been developed into Breakout games.

My students thrive when working as a team to solve engaging problems and they take ownership of their learning.

Having these kits will allow me to create games and activities that are very non-traditional and highly engaging. The gamification of learning makes learning enjoyable for all students.
