Students in Michelle LeFauve’s web development and game design program at the Niagara Career and Technical Education Center recently completed a fun project. In order to prepare for their final project of the year – building a breakout game/escape rooms – they tried their hands at solving a breakout game.
The game is similar to an escape room, without a room. The goal is to solve a series of puzzles to open locks on boxes. The first team to open the final box wins.
“It was a great way for the students to have the opportunity to demonstrate their problem-solving skills,” LeFauve said. “Their final games will be played by other Orleans/Niagara BOCES students.”
