How to Use:
Students are separated into four groups and placed on a mission to unlock the box. The box is locked with four different locks. Each group will be given challenges to solve in order to get the locks off. They may work in their groups, or come together as a whole to help pass a level. They have 45 minutes to complete the mission. They also have 3 hint cards that can be used at any time if they get stuck. The hint cards allow the teacher to help. Once all the hint cards have been used, the students are on their own For a better understanding of how this works, be sure to download the preview file.
