What Our Community Is Saying:

"Students loved competing in a digital breakout game!! 100% engagement & brain power."

Love me some @breakoutEDU! My favorite thing to do with my students (and on my days off too, if I’m being honest)

I was SO impressed with the students' communication, collaboration, creativity, & critical thinking skills while breaking out of their virtual @breakoutEDU 

The kids loved it!!!!  It got them working together and thinking critically.  They are already asking for the next one.

Not only are we consolidating and assessing our learning of 'the form and function of materials and matter', but we are promoting collaboration, developing critical thinking skills, and building inference skills - all while having a blast! @breakoutEDU

“The collaboration skills really come into play as the students work together to solve the clues. @breakoutEDU
