The Banyule Nillumbik and Whittlesea Tech Schools are supporting you during the 2020 National Science Week, offering something a little different to engage your students during round two of remote learning.

Virtual Escape Room Challenge

15 to 23 August 2020

The objective of this program is to engage students in the design and construction of a themed escape room experience.

Students will collaborate virtually, in teams, to create themed puzzles. Each team will build a different puzzle, complete with clues and decorations related to a specific historical time period. Students will have a choice of five themes/historical periods – Stone Age, Bronze Age, Ancient Rome, Early Modern, and Late Modern.

The puzzle will need to meet specific requirements and align with the escape room narrative  – each of the puzzles will house a puzzle clue that will hold the answer to override MOTHER, an AI threatening to take over the world.

Participating schools will be invited to showcase their best puzzles at an Escape Room showcase event in Term 4 at The Tech School.
