Why Escape Rooms?
Why do people gather together, sometimes under extreme weather conditions, exhausting themselves both mentally and physically, to play sports? Basketball, soccer, football to name a few. Two reasons.
One, once you know the rules, each of these sports is relatively simple. Take this away and it's just chaos.
Two, there's a motivating factor - a desire to win. Take this away and the activity or sport becomes instantly boring.
Gamification of Learning
Now, let's imagine adding this motivating factor to learning. The end result is a learning experience that's fun, engaging, effective, and sometimes even addictive.
This is what our escape rooms are. With simple rules, participants compete making their experience fun, rewarding and more effective. Their retention of information learned is dramatically increased.
