Breakout Box Workshop

This unique free professional development workshop involves learning about the corn industry while experiencing how to use Breakout boxes in the classroom. Discover how the use of a breakout box can challenge and teach students in a new way.  Free breakout box lessons are available to teachers.


Modeled after, workshop participants will be using the breakout boxes to learn about the history of corn while also “unlocking” new knowledge about how the Kansas Corn Commission is investing in teachers. At the completion of the workshop the school will receive three breakout boxes to share among the teachers, one year free subscription to and access to additional free resources from Kansas Corn STEM.

UPDATE: For this school year we are offering two professional visit options. 1. Preferred option: The traditional in person visit. 2. Alternative option: Our virtual visit will include shipping the breakout boxes to the host teacher in advance and the professional development speaker will lead the presentation remotely.  Zoom would be the recommended program for the virtual presentation. 

Please submit request form at least 3 weeks prior to your event.
