APS and NSF-funded science-based escape room returns to the APS March Meeting, with an entirely new mission — the fate and security of the entire world hang in the balance, as you race to run the world’s first distributed quantum algorithm!
World-renowned quantum physicist Professor Schrödenberg is quarantining and desperately needs your help — the fate and security of the entire world hang in the balance, as you race to run the world’s first distributed quantum algorithm! You'll have to search her lab, solve mind-blowing puzzles to reveal clues, and hopefully find a way to complete your mission — saving us all! As featured in The New York Times, this APS- and NSF-funded outreach project is, we believe, the world’s first science-based 'escape-room', in which all the puzzles involve various physics phenomena. Our goal is to show that science can be useful and accessible (no prior background is assumed), as well as beautiful and fun! (But don't think it will be easy — the success rate for this latest mission is only 30%.)
LabEscape will be available for only $3 for March meeting attendees and guests (12 and over please), with times available every day and evening Saturday through Friday (though mostly only afternoon/evening slots are showing at the moment, giving local high school students a chance to sign up first).
