Practice Your STEM Skills at an Escape Room!

By OSC on May 15, 2018 in What's New

At Orlando Science Center, we’re all about 21st-Century Skills. Current and future generations can only solve problems and improve the world if they have skills like critical thinking, communication and collaboration. All of these skills are also necessary for success in STEM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). OSC’s exhibits and educational programs offer so many ways to develop these skills, but we’re not the only place in town where you can do that. Try an escape room!

What is an escape room?

Escape rooms are a form of entertainment that have become popular within the last decade. The concept is to lock a team of participants in a room, where they must solve themed puzzles to gather clues, keys, and other helpful objects in a sequence. The goal is to find the way out of the room before time runs out.

Escape rooms aren’t found everywhere, but they have become relatively abundant in Central Florida, a national hub for tourism and attractions. We’ve compiled a comprehensive list so you can select your first (or next) escape room adventure!
