STEAM Breakout EDU
During piloting with West Hawaiʻi DOE middle schools, a Breakout EDU activity was created based on STEAM questions related to Kahaluʻu Ma Kai. See below for downloadable resources.
Kahaluʻu Ma Kai Breakout EDU Educator Guide
To further enhance the experience, a blended Breakout EDU activity was created for those able to physically visit Kahaluʻu Ma Kai. Students combined their virtual huakaʻi knowledge with their classroom studies to solve a set of STEM/ʻāina-based puzzles to “break into” the locked boxes and retrieve their reward.
