As a public outreach effort and as part of the celebration of 50 years, DAMOP will host LabEscape, an APS- and NSF-funded STEM-outreach escape room developed at the Univ. Illinois. 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 less than an hour to search her lab, solve mind-blowing puzzles to reveal clues, and hopefully find a way to escape! The goal of LabEscape, in which all the puzzles involve various physics phenomena, e.g., polarization, blackbody radiation, magnetism, etc., is to show that science can be useful and accessible (no prior background is assumed — a group of high school students had the record time at the March meeting!), as well as beautiful and fun. So create a team of 4-7 Agents (or join someone else’s) and sign up below. But hurry — LabEscape ‘sold out’ quickly at the March meeting.
