INTERACTIVE EXPERIENCE : Banana Breakout 

Running Time: Self-paced* 

Banana Breakout is similar to a traditional single-player pong game, but in this version, the student aims a bunch of bananas at correct answers to a proposed question. Monkeys hold the correct responses, and if “fed”, will increase the student’s score. Tigers hold incorrect answers, and if they receive the bananas, the student’s score will decrease. Students begin with 3 lives, only losing one each time they miss catching the bananas. The goal of this interactive game is to play through as many levels of increasing speed before all lives are lost, building a maximum score.
