Grades 3-5 (limit 12)
This program follows the popular 'Escape the Room' model. Students are presented with information (such as maps, historical information, building plans, directories, props) and cryptic clues they need to solve to open locks and boxes, allowing them to 'escape' within the time allocated. The clues are often in code, requiring they first 'discover' the clue. These codes are visual, physical, mathematical and language based such as riddles. Often they have to use tools they may not be familiar with to break the code (screwdrivers, compasses, protractors, origami instructions). The clues themselves lead them to the props in the room or are sometimes general knowledge.
