LabEscape Escape Room



During ASTC 2019, don’t miss your chance to experience what may be the world’s only science-based escape room, in which all the puzzles involve various physics phenomena. You will literally see objects disappear in front of your eyes—no CGI tricks here! This STEM-engagement outreach project, funded by the American Physics Society and the U.S. National Science Foundation, aims to show that science can be useful and accessible, as well as beautiful and fun!

World-renowned quantum physicist Professor Alberta Pauline Schrödenberg is stuck on an airplane and desperately needs your help—the fate and security of the entire world (and more importantly, her funding!) hang in the balance. You’ll have to search her lab, solve mind-blowing puzzles to reveal clues, and hopefully find a way to complete your mission.

LabEscape will be open at no charge to anyone with an ASTC badge. Reserve your 60- to 70-minute mission time online in advance at Mission-time reservations are available on a first-come, first-serve basis, and team reservations may be made for groups of up to seven people. Time slots are available daily, Friday–Monday, September 20–23.

Preregistration required. Space is limited.
