PBL Breakout Story

This summer, prepare for another epic PBL Adventure with Dr. Sparks and the S-TEAM!

Dr. Sparks’ evil twin and his mischievous Labrats return after their defeat last summer with new plans on how to destroy the S-TEAM.

Armed with the five branches of STEAM, Dr. Sparks and the S-TEAM are coming to the rescue, and they need your help!

Each day, students become problem-solving heroes, unraveling puzzles, thinking outside the box and outsmarting Dr. Plarks at every turn!

Are you ready to take your English skills to the next level in the ultimate showdown?

Join Dr. Sparks' PBL Breakout Summer Camp and help make the world a safer place.

 

Here's how our camp works:

  1. Introduce the Concept – In Dr. Sparks’ style, teacher-led hands-on experiments will introduce the concepts.

  2. Present the Challenge – A story featuring one of the members of the S Team will set up a challenge that the students need to solve.

  3. Provide the Tools – We provide everything the students need to find a solution.

  4. Solve the Problem – Students work individually or in groups to figure out how to use the tools to find a solution to the problem.

The themes for both levels are the same. Here is how the 2 levels are different.

  • Level 1 will have some of the more difficult parts of the experiments prepared for them.

  • Level 1 will use a bit more Chinese to help with key words and concepts that students may not be familiar with.

  • Level 2 will challenge kids more with intricate parts of the experiments that require better fine motor skills. 

  • Level 2 will talk about the scientific concepts in more detail. There will be more open questions, conversations, and opportunity for discussions.

 

Students going into grade 4 are welcome to choose which level is more suitable for them. For students less comfortable in an English environment, stick to level 1. Students who are comfortable using English can come up to level 2.
