Have you ever participated in a breakout room or escape room where you had to solve clues and try to "escape" in one hour? This is a portable energy efficiency-themed breakout room we have developed for Kansas students and educators. Make sure to watch the intro video(s) below for more information about this great resource.
The breakout room kit comes in a storage container (29"x15"x21")
We recommend no more than 7-8 students per breakout room. There are two available.
We have used this breakout room with students as young as 5th-6th grade; you will likely just need to give more hints to younger students. The instructions include options to simplify the breakout room for younger students.
The breakout room is designed to last one hour, but can be shortened to approximately 40 minutes.
You should plan on setting up the breakout room in an area at least 10'x10' with one or two tables and a wall to hang posters on (painters tape included). It will take approximately 30 minutes to set up.
Instructions are included with the kit (or you can ask us to come out and facilitate the breakout room).
This activity works great as a follow-up to our lightbox!
