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.
MADE UP OF LEVELS
Each challenge is composed of levels of increasing difficulty.
BASED IN STEM TOPICS
Challenges cover areas like robotics, 3D design, energy, engineering, and more.
MAKE MEANINGFUL ARTIFACTS
Every challenge is built around making products students care about.
In the free-choice environment of FUSE. every activity has to be engaging at every step of the way to maintain student interest.
LEVERAGE YOUTH INTERESTS
Challenges are inspired by products and activities that students are interested in like game design, jewelry making, and fashion.
