    Puzzles and Coding in Creative Computing’s Escape Room

    In creative computing, Peck’s eighth-graders set forth to create the experience of a lifetime for their fellow classmates. Earlier this year, students in this elective class visited Trap Door Escape Room in Morristown. They utilized Agency by Design to look closely and explore the complexity of how the Escape Room functions. “By creating this escape room, it teaches students design, collaboration, and risk-taking," said Bruce Schwartz, director of the Osborn Idea & Design Lab. “But in the process, they’re also learning about Arduino and the associated programming language.” Arduino is an open-source electronic prototyping platform that enables users to create interactive electronic objects. Using this tool, students came up with several creative, and fun challenges for their Peck community.
