Mrs. Jamie Connelly of the Beaver County Educational Trust (BCET) visited Highland’s STEAM classroom on April 15.  The BCET awarded the Highland Elementary STEAM program a grant for $500.  The grant entitled  "Immersive Learning through Collaboration" was written by Mrs. Nicole Darroch.  Grant monies were used to purchase four Breakout EDU kits.  Breakout EDU kits turn the classroom into an academically-focused escape room.  Students use teamwork and critical thinking to solve puzzles in order to open the locked box.  Games are used for all age levels and content areas.   The Breakout kits have been a welcome addition to our STEAM classroom.  We are grateful to the BCET and Mrs. Connelly for their support of our elementary STEAM program."
