Incase you haven't heard or experienced this new educational phenomenon, here are the details and an explanation.

What is BreakoutEDU?
BreakoutEDU is a game. It involves students finding and solving clues to be able to unlock locks on a box. Once the locks are all unlocked, the students are rewarded with a prize of some sort in the box. It sounds really simple, right?
