Experience LabEscape at the Wisconsin Science Festival!

World-renowned quantum physicist Professor Alberta Pauline Schrödenberg 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!

This APS- and NSF-funded outreach project is, we believe, the world’s first science-based ‘escape room,’ in which all the puzzles involve various physics phenomena, e.g., polarization, blackbody radiation, magnetism, etc. Our goal is to show that science can be useful and accessible (no prior background is assumed), as well as beautiful and fun!

LabEscape will be open all day Friday (10 a.m.-10 p.m.), Saturday ( 9 a.m.-10 p.m.) and Sunday (10 a.m.-3 p.m.) at UW-Madison’s Chamberlin Hall. Create a team of 3-7 Agents (or join someone else’s team) and sign up online. For more information, see https://labescape.org/WSF/, or call 1-815-683-8193 (and leave a message).
