ScienceWise Course: Breakout Boxes for Beginners

November 9, 2019

Time: 8:30AM to 12:30PM

Price: $25/course

GRADUATE CREDIT IS AN ADDITIONAL $70 PAYBLE TO BAKER UNIVERSITY. INFORMATION WILL BE HANDED OUT AT COURSE. 

Breakout boxes take the appeal of the "escape room" and bring the 4C's alive: critical thinking, creativity, collaboration and communcation. Instead of a locked room, teams must figure out how to get inside a tightly locked box using curriuculum-related puzzles. In this workshop, you will be introduced to Breakout EDU's physical and digital lockbox games, play a breakout b ox, explore Breakout EDU website, located where to find and print clues and practice how to reset the locks. 

Presenter: Jennifer Blank, Raytown School District

ETS1.A: Defining and Delimiting Engineering Problems

Possible solutions to a problem are limited by available materials and resources (constraints). The success of a designed solution is determined by considering the desired features of a solution (criteria). Different proposals for solutions can be compared on the basis of how well each one meets the specified criteria for success or how well each takes the constraints into account.

5.ETS1.B.1 Generate and compare multiple possible solutions to a problem based on how well each is likely to meet the criteria and constraints of the problem.

K-2-ETS1- 1. Ask questions, make observations, and gather information about a situation people want to change to define a simple problem that can be solved
