A group of museums is conducting research on informal science institutions and escape rooms experiences. An escape room is an increasingly popular physical adventure game in which players are “locked” in a room and as a team must solve a series of puzzles to “escape” the room. The purpose of this survey is to the gauge the level of interest among the informal science education community in pop-up escape room experiences that would engage visitors in a group problem-solving activity while teaching basic, NGSS-aligned science content.

This survey should only take a few minutes to complete and should cause no more discomfort than you would experience in your everyday life. No identifying information is being collected as part of this survey. Your participation is solicited, although strictly voluntary. Your responses will be treated as confidential; however, it is possible with internet communications that through intent or accident someone other than the intended recipient may see your response.
