Participants have just one hour to help Professor Alberta Pauline Schroedenberg, who’s been stricken with an ultra-virulent strain of the Zika virus, which causes near total memory loss. Her only hope is if they can engage a quantum network (featuring a fully-functional quantum entanglement source emulator) to realize the world’s first distributed quantum processor. To do that they’ll have to solve myriad puzzles, and engage with various physical phenomena, including optics, electricity and magnetism, thermodynamics, and quantum mechanics.
LabEscape is, we believe, the world’s first science-based escape room. Over the past 5 years we’ve engaged more than 10,000 people, from scientists to the general public, including over 2000 STEM students. While absolutely no science knowledge is assumed, participants get a taste of what it’s like to be a scientist, as they search for clues, brainstorm to form hypotheses, perform experiments that often fail, finally succeeding only to reveal more questions.
