LabEscape is a non-profit outreach activity whose goal is to show that science can be accessible, relevant, beautiful and fun, via a unique science-based escape room experience. Agents must solve a series of jaw-dropping puzzles based on various physics phenomena – objects will literally disappear before their eyes! – though absolutely no science background is needed to successfully complete the mission: solving the mystery of missing quantum computing expert, Professor Alberta Schroedenberg.
