What is a Challenge?
At the heart of FUSE are our challenges.
Each challenge is a carefully designed educational activity composed of levels of increasing difficulty. Each challenge is based in a STEAM topic and designed to appeal to students’ personal, non-STEAM interests. The leveled structure of our challenges allow for personalized learning: the early levels hook students and provide early success, while more advanced tasks in later levels build confidence and ability.
