Countdown to Launch: Escape Room Family Challenge

Countdown to Launch: Escape Room Family Challenge

After nearly 300 million miles, NASA’s Perseverance rover is planned to complete its journey to Mars on the 18th February. To celebrate this outstanding journey we have launched a free virtual escape room!

About Count Down to Launch
The first rocket to launch from a Scottish spaceport is due for lift off in 60 minutes. In all of the excitement, the 4-digit launch code needed to start the final ten second countdown has been misplaced! Can you search for clues to uncover pieces of the launch code and figure our the correct order to keep this much anticipated launch on schedule?


Recommended ages 6+ 


If you do happen to get stuck, we also have the solution for you to crack the final launch code.

If you are an educator interested in taking part in the escape room with your class, please visit our ASC In Your Classroom page to request a link to be shared with your class and for post engagement activities.
