Collaborating with Code

At Scarsdale Middle School, sixth grade students in Ms. Cronk’s technology class are learning how to code. To help reinforce the skills they are learning, Ms. Cronk designed a Virtual Escape Room.


An Escape Room or Escape Game is a game in which players work in teams to discover clues, solve puzzles and accomplish a series of tasks in order to ‘escape’ before their time runs out. In Ms. Cronk’s Virtual Escape Room, students used code and critical thinking to reveal clues, solve puzzles, and be the first to ‘escape’. A short clip of the winning team solving their final clue is below.
