(JNS) How quickly can you solve different challenges to find the launch code and send SpaceIL’s lunar spacecraft to the moon?
That’s the question the iCenter for Israel Education is asking groups around the country in a different kind of escape room experience. As the clock counts down, participants learn about Israeli history, arts and culture, Jewish mysticism, STEM—and how to work as a team.
Over the past year, the room has traveled across North America, welcoming groups as young as 13, in addition to educators, administrators and lay leaders. The SpaceIL escape room has been used with all types of audiences, including Jewish summer-camp directors, educators and leaders at day schools, congregational schools, rabbinic programs, teens and college students.
