Breakout EDU Product Info
Breakout EDU is a platform for immersive learning games. Games (Breakouts) teach teamwork, problem solving, critical thinking, and troubleshooting by presenting participants with challenges that ignite their natural drive to problem-solve.
The inspiration for Breakout EDU comes from the wildly popular “escape the room” games where players have a set amount of time to solve the puzzles and escape the room.
Rather than escaping the room, students have a set amount of time to solve curricular aligned puzzles to open the box. The platform has many free games as well as templates to help educators design their own!
The Breakout EDU Movement
Breakout EDU was founded by James Sanders and Mark Hammons. Right now you can join the Breakout EDU movement by ordering a kit (or compiling one from this open sources document) and then playing the game. You can get directly to the games by visiting www.breakoutedu.com/games. You need to join the beta group in order to get full access. This security step is to keep the game solutions from the public eye. Once you play, you won't be able to stop, so feel free to begin designing a Breakout EDU scenario.
