SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- The answer is: the Syracuse City High School with the highest graduation rate in 2011. The question: what is the Institute of Technology at Syracuse Central?

With a graduation rate of 78 percent, it's a number that warranted a visit institute by a member of the Jeopardy Clue Crew. The students in Mrs. Perez's ninth grade Spanish class played Classroom Jeopardy. It's an interactive, electronic version of the TV game show. And the answers should be familiar to the students.

Clue Crew member Kelly Miyahara said, "The game is really special because it allows teachers to customize the material to what the students are actually learning in school. So, the school will be able to continue the use of this unit making learning fun, engaging the students, and I think the teachers as well."

The Classroom Jeopardy game was donated to the school for use with future classes. And the Clue Crew members don't only visit schools, they also get to appear on the show. They present video questions from around the world.
