Construct is managing the operations and expansion of School Retool and Breaker services in Oregon.

By offering these complementary programs for school leaders, teachers, and students we support your efforts to expand the capacity for creativity and innovation on your campus.

School Retool for Principals and Breaker for Educators teaches a creative collaborative problem solving method through “hacks,” “sprints,” and “rapid design cycles.”

Practice new mindsets and expand your own creative confidence as you develop strategies for putting students at the center of the learning experience and build deeper learning opportunities school-wide.

Each summer we run a two week Breaker design challenge focused on a new, interesting, and very relevant topic. The summer design challenge is open to students age 14-17 and runs the first two weeks of August. We house the pop-educational experience on one of Portland’s college campuses.

We partner with College Possible to help us get the word out and recruit great students from across the metro region. All students are welcome to apply you do not need to be in the College Possible network.

Recruitment will open for our 2018 Design Challenge in February.



Shadow students during the summer challenge, learn the Breaker method, and help us expand the program to schools across Oregon.
