Similar to an escape room, but at a smaller scale, a breakout box is a box secured with a six-lock hasp. Teams need to solve clues in order to get the combinations for each lock to open the hasp and unlock the box. Clues can be solved in any order and teams can try out the combinations as they think they’ve solved each lock or try them all at once.
Participate virtually, or in-person, and uncover clues that lead you around Los Alamos. An immersive, learning platform with different boxes for different audiences and skill levels. Winners will be entered into a raffle for some cool ScienceFest prizes!
The boxes are located 2-5 p.m. today through Friday outside projectY cowork, 150 Central Park Square, near Pet Pangaea and Rose Chocolatier. They also will be accessible 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday by Fuller Lodge Lawn. The box will be sanitized between tries.
