On March 21, we posted a high-energy video from a teacher training exercise in Fauquier County, Virginia that went viral and picked up 70K+ views in less than a week’s time! The success of the video inspired us to launch the worldwide #EDrenaline Rush #EggDashChallenge, and invite teachers around the world to join in the fun. And in less than two weeks, the party has spread to classrooms all across the U.S. and beyond.

Can we #FillTheMap before Easter?
