DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO ESCAPE?

INTRODUCING MERCHANTVILLE SCHOOL’S 2019 SCIENCE EXPO:

STEM ESCAPE ROOM CHALLENGE

Grades 3-8

Thursday, May 30th 5:45-8:30pm

DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO ESCAPE?

HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:

TEAMS: We suggest you work in teams of at least 2, and no more than 6.  ONLY those teams with students grade 4 and under may have an adult team member for assistance.  Teams with students at grades 5 or over will not require an adult team member.

THE ROOM:  Each team will have an approximately 10x10 space which serves as their Escape Room.  Once the challenge begins, you will have 60 minutes to escape the room.  You may not leave the room once the challenge begins, and you may not communicate with anyone outside of your room. Each Escape Room will have one adult room monitor assigned to track progress and advance teams to their next challenge.

THE CHALLENGES: You will be given a series of 5 STEM-related challenges.  Each challenge must be accomplished successfully before you may advance to the next challenge.  When you have completed all 5 challenges, you will escape the room!

WHAT TO BRING:  Bring nothing but yourself, your team members, and your thinking caps!  All supplies will be provided.  NO SMART PHONES OR TABLETS!

WHEN TO ARRIVE:  After completing the registration form at the bottom of the page, or online via the PTA site, you will be contacted with your arrival time. 

AWARDS:  Each team that successfully escapes the room will receive a prize.  A grand prize will also be given to the team that escapes in the fastest time. 

 

YOUR NEXT TASK IS SIMPLE.  ASSEMBLE A TEAM, AND FILL OUT THE REGISTRATION FORM BELOW.  RETURN TO TEACHER OR MAIN OFFICE BY MAY 27th, 2019.  GOOD LUCK.
