Escape Room Summer Camps at IQ Escape in Pittsburgh and State College
IQ Escape Summer Camp is an innovative way to bring STEAM and education to life for students of all ages! We develop our escape rooms to provide customers with the opportunity to challenge themselves and have a blast in the process. Entertaining customers was our primary objective from day one until now. Through partnerships with school districts’ STEAM programs, it became clear a much a greater opportunity existed. We have made the decision to leverage our knowledge of small business and technology for educational purposes.
Designing a functional escape room requires proficiency in every subject included in middle school and high school curriculums. This process requires: Creative writing and thinking; Problem solving; Artistic creativity; Geometry; Architecture; Electrical diagrams; Automation and Coding. In one week you can expect your children to be exposed to all of these and have an absolute blast in the process. Our experience with middle school students made us realize the educational value of what we do day in and day out. They will undoubtedly focus on the entertainment inherent to our curriculum, but we can guarantee everything they learn will prove valuable as they progress through school.
Additionally, they will be exposed to all the components that must be pieced together to open a successful start-up company. We realize this may initially appear to be a daunting task, but our interactions with various middle schools and the STEAM program has made us believers.
Every individual is different and as a result we are engaged by very different things. We view this as Camp IQ’s greatest strength. Whether your child loves reading, history, science, math, building, or technology Camp IQ provides the best opportunity for them to dive into what they enjoy most. Camp IQ will be supervised by the owners of IQ Escape and local teachers from the area.
We were also featured at the PETE&C 2018 (PA Educational Technology Expo and Conference) in which we collaborated with Penn’s Valley Area School District 4th-6th grade gifted student program. In this partnership we assisted teacher, Kristen Albright, and her students in building, designing and creating an escape room that was then played by over 180 teachers who were attending the conference and toured by many more. The students, with our assistance and guidance, completely designed and created this experience. IQ Escape then brought their ideas to life with the automation and props of the game.
