Learn how to design an education escape room that measures collaboration and creative problem solving skills.
Designing Educational Escape Rooms is a 2-day, immersive design experience that engages designers in developing highly interactive and fun approaches to help players learn about and then improve their collaborative and creative problem solving skills. We will delve into the educational potential of the international craze of escape rooms by inviting participants into a mobile puzzle bus that the d.school has been sharing with students and teachers around the country. Participants will learn and implement the design process in order to prototype their own educational puzzle room experiences, and have local K-12 students test their creations! Participants will gain inspiration and tools for how to equitably build capacity around skills like collaboration and creative problem solving in their own contexts.
