Escape Room: Dr. Bore & the Quest for Hope
Friday, July 21, 5:00-6:00 pm

Our latest pre-teen program asks players to use teamwork and critical thinking to solve a series of challenging puzzles in order to open a locked box.
It is the year 3000 and the world is in danger. Centuries of human impact have made the planet unstable and scientists predict that the Earth has less than five years left. Life around the world is in chaos, as people turn to one woman for the answers...
Dr. Candace Bore is a world renowned environmental scientist who has been studying human impact on the planet for years. She predicted the world's demise and came up with a way to stop it. However, after years of people refusing to listen to her research, she left and went into hiding. All she left behind in her laboratory was her research. You hope that, somewhere in her usually immaculate laboratory, there is a clue that will tell you how to save the planet, before it is too late...
Can you escape?
For children aged 10-13.  Light snack provided.

**Spaces are limited and registration is required.**
