What are "OUTTA The BOX" Classroom Competitions?

An "Outta the Box" Competition is a STEAM-based, classroom-friendly workshop that develops students’ teamwork, creativity, and critical thinking skills in an engaging and meaningful way.

An "Outta the Box" Competition uses easy-to-find materials for all challenges. Classroom Competitions are approximately 2 hours, with each challenge lasting anywhere from 10 to 40 minutes.

Challenges can be performed in a 2-hour block or broken into smaller blocks of time. 3 to 5 teams of 4-6 students work best for OTB Competitions.

Why Have "Outta the Box" Competitions?

The objective of an "Outta the Box" Competition is to prepare today’s children for tomorrow’s challenges.

"Outta the Box" Competitions provide students with unique opportunities to develop creative thinking skills. Students learn to think on their feet using the materials at hand and develop solutions that come to life in a friendly and competitive manner.

Unlike many classroom problems or challenges, there is never one correct solution, although some of those solutions may work better than others. All solutions depend on teamwork, while also being dependent on the basic characteristics of creative thinking such as:

awareness, curiosity, imagination, flexibility, fluency, originality,
elaboration and perseverance.
