AP Chem Students Earn A Test On Fortnite After Beating Teacher's 6,700 Retweet Challenge

There's no doubt that Fortnite has taken over classrooms -- to the point that some have complained of the negative impact it's had on education. But, some teachers are apparently embracing it.

In one case, an AP Chemistry teacher in Ohio promised his students that if they could get 6,700 retweets on a picture, he'd let them take their second semester exam on the popular battle royale game. The challenge was posted on February 23, and it didn't take long for them to earn the retweets.

To be honest, the instructor should have set the bar a little higher -- unless that is, he just wanted an excuse to make an exam on Fortnite anyway. But, even if that's the case, he could have shot a little higher. As it turns out, they managed to get over 30,000 retweets.

The good news here is, not everyone taking the test has to be a Fortnite player to pass the test. Rather than actually making the test just about the game, the instructor plans to structure chemistry questions around Fortnite terms.
