• Limited Materials Required

    No locks and other expensive materials are required to run the escape room. For a more authentic experience, locks and boxes can be integrated into the activities.

  • Modular Design

    Unlike many escape rooms, the teacher is in total control of which of the 8 puzzles they want to use and in which order to use them. Each puzzle is independent of the others. Great for differentiation.

  • Student-Centered

    The escape rooms are designed to be 100% student-led. Sit back and watch students demonstrate mastery of your science curriculum. Students will also develop soft skills such as troubleshooting, logical thinking, and teamwork.
