Impact to My Classroom

# of Students Impacted: 1000

Thank you so much for this opportunity!  Our students and teachers are thrilled!

 

We have started with the BreakoutEDU boxes to much success in Math and Science.  We already have Language Arts and Social Studies teachers asking to get a chance too!  I know this is a tool that will reach all of our students throughout school years to come.

 

It has been amazing to watch the students get excited, collaborate, problem solve, apply knowledge and encourage each other throughout the process.  Everyone who has stopped in to watch has been in awe.  Every single student in the classes has been participating and excited to do it again.

 

The kits came with reflection prompt cards which really open up discussions for the students.  They are talking about their communication, planning, and problem solving techniques.  They are recognizing skill sets they have or need to improve upon.  These discussions allow the teachers to address concepts covered and applied in the activity.

 

Thanks again!

Original Grant Overview

Goal

To increase students' skills as independent problem solvers while applying and integrating concepts learned in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) classes. We plan to start with two math teachers and then expand to other subjects. 

 

What will be done with my students

Purchasing six boxes will allow two math teachers the ability to divide students into small groups to compete against each other. Students will be presented with a story problem and have a specific amount of time to "breakout" of the box. They will escape by solving a variety of complex puzzles/problems relating to their curriculum to open different types of locks to get into the final box within a set time limit. Students and teachers will reflect on their experience and the learning as a critical piece of this experience. 

 

Benefits to my students

Students will be engaged in a student-centered activity that requires the future job skills of communication, collaboration, problem solving and critical thinking - all with a deadline. They will be applying concepts learned in class in a meaningful way and will be able to take ownership of their learning. These experiences utilize a variety of puzzles requiring students to be resourceful and apply knowledge learned from all subjects.

Purchasing the school bundle will allow teachers to collaborate with each other to design their own personalized games related to their class content and student interests.
