Education escape plan in 60 minutes

Working together, problem solving and learning how to program. These are all examples of 21st century skills that children will need in the work field of the future. But how do you teach children from grade 5 to grade 8, as well as the first two years of secondary school, how to develop these skills? Library Eemland asked TinQwise Immersive to create an experience: the first educative escape room for children has been born.

Smarter

The escape room contains all kinds of puzzles that are developed to test the skills of the children, like working together. You can’t solve the puzzles on your own, so an entire classroom will go into the escape room all at once to reach the final goal. For the youngest children that is finding the cat Mittens, while the older children are trying to rescue a vlogger who has been kidnapped. By being creative and solving problems you’ll be even more smart when you get of out there together!

More social

Learning 21st century skills means getting serious about the work you’ll have to put in. You can’t just learn that from sitting in a classroom behind a computer – it’s something you learn by working together with others. That’s what makes this escape room so unique: as many as thirty children can get to work together at the same time. The skills they learn here can immediately be applied to their own social life, both online and offline.
