Turn your classroom into an academically-focused escape room and facilitate games where players use teamwork and critical thinking to solve a series of challenging puzzles in order to open the locked box. In addition to the content knowledge needed to succeed, a bioescape requires critical thinking, collaboration, creativity and communication. Bring technology and critical thinking to your classroom with BioEscapes. Students learn about bioenergy basics and domestic opportunities by participating in a unique blend of a traditional escape room coupled with a challenging scavenger hunt for bioenergy literacy.
