Engage & Play

Escape Room

April 21 4:00 pm – 5:00 p.m. ET and April 28 8:45 p.m. – 9:45 p.m. ET

Take a break during the online virtual conference to compete in one of three Virtual Escape Room events. Participants will work together to solve interactive online puzzles over video chat. Work with your team by talking out loud and drawing on the screen to figure out codes. Instead of inputting them into a lock, you give the correct codes to your game master to advance to the next stage of the game. You successfully escape and win when your team correctly solves the final puzzle!


The following activities are FREE to Conference attendees
