Awesome Escape Rooms 4 Kids
was developed to help prepare children for their future success in school, early work experiences and beyond.
Based on years of research and program development, the escape room program helps build targeted skills and resilience in children.
Children learn to simplify complex strategies and identify unique solutions by building or escaping rooms that challenge assumptions, engage, and surprise.
