"My kids had a lot of fun and the questions presented were right on target for what they have been learning in the classroom. It was cool to see their eyes light up when they figured something out or knew the content of the question asked. We had a lot of fun!"

"Escape Classrooms provided a memorable experience for our students and parents through an Escape Room GT family night. Chris worked closely with me to design escape rooms that met the needs and purpose of the event and went above and beyond to execute 12 escape rooms simultaneously. He and his team came early to set up and were so helpful to our staff as we prepared each room. The parents and students were blown away by the challenge and still comment on how much they enjoyed completing an escape room with their family and friends."

“The escape room was an engaging and challenging way to review the concepts we have covered throughout the year. By allowing the students to use their content knowledge in a different and unique way, it allowed the students to apply their knowledge and made it more concrete.”

“We loved getting to host this grant through Escape Classrooms to cumulatively review our content for the year. Students had a great time!”"

"It had great instructions and clear Teacher set up. It was well planned and thorough. I would have enjoyed working through it as an adult. My students had not done a breakout room like this before. This was much more authentic and mirrored one I went to with friends."

“This is really great stuff!! It’s so easy for teachers to set up and use, without requiring vast planning. Because they can easily ID outcomes, it is simple for them to set out a quick, effective plan and have some great fun working through the questions. I think kids will love it and I bet teachers will be able to use this activity in many ways: studying, reviewing, reinforcing; a fun activity that offers a change or break from typical daily lessons (you know, like near the end of a unit when you’ve really had them working solidly for days and you think they need a bit of a break?). I also think the idea could be utilized in a class like my Learning Strategies, to reinforce study skills, learning strengths, etc. You could reinforce team work, recognizing strengths or even learning styles, and how each student brings different strengths/ skills to the activity and can contribute to the solution.”
“Escape Classrooms was a wonderful opportunity to help review with our students in a fun way. Chris was easy to work with, and he created amazing clues based on the content we cover. Our students enjoyed the challenge of solving clues that incorporated material they had learned in multiple subjects to escape and move from room to room. My team is looking forward to working with Chris in the future to provide our students with a unique method to review.”

"To make sure that we pass our ELAR tests and achieve something great in life, our teacher used escape room strategies, especially the STEAL strategy for characters. I've been using it since 7th grade and I'm now a junior. Honestly, without that, I don't think I would've made it as far as I have today. I really do appreciate that!"
