Badge Overview

The Syracuse Teacher Center purchased BreakOut EDU kits for each of the buildings.  These kits are available in your school library media center.
Breakout EDU is a physical game kit and platform where students work together to solve various puzzles to open a locked box, similar to an escape room. You can use Breakout kits in every subject area and grade level.  Breakout EDU provides students with opportunities to build necessary critical-thinking, communication, social and emotional skills necessary as they solve these complex problems collaboratively.
To supplement the physical kit, play or create a Breakout digital game (on the web or through an iOS or Android app). The online format allows teachers to track progress and set time limits for students. These digital games are geared more toward warm-ups and homework and can be completed individually. Students can also design their own digital games that can be approved by the teacher and added to a classroom library. 

We have two Breakout EDU kits that are also available to check out through the Syracuse Teacher Center.   Upon successful completion of this badge, Syracuse Teacher Center Breakout EDU kits may be checked out for a two week period.  Complete this form to request to check out this equipment:
