Teamwork Makes the Dream Work: Staff and Students Experience an Onsite Escape Room

This past spring's curriculum theme was LET THE GAMES BEGIN. The staff and students had the chance to participate in an Escape Room put together by staff members Jacob Brown and Dana McLaughlin. The Escape Room was a great opportunity for everyone to participate in something fun and collaborative.

“The idea for the Escape Room came about during our Let the Games Begin theme. We watched several entertaining videos on famous celebrities trying to make their way out in time and our artists were fascinated!” says theater teacher Jacob Brown. “Learning how each puzzle worked helped inspire us to create our own versions. The best part is that these puzzles were based around our artists and knowing their interests was the key!”

The Escape Room was a ton of fun for everyone involved! Once it was all set up, the staff was divided into teams and took turns trying to escape as fast as they could. It was a blast, and at the end of it all, everyone got an award that highlighted their skills. Some of them were written in a hilarious way, which just made the experience that much better.
