Have you wondered what cancer is, how does it occur, and why some cancers are curable while others are not? Be transported to an immersive experience to see first-hand the journey of a cancer cell throughout the body.

As the world’s first cancer-themed puzzle room (or more commonly referred to as an escape room), participants have to solve a series of puzzles that have been designed with the underlying principles of cancer biology. As no prior knowledge is required, we’re using the escape/puzzle room platform as a unique, engaging physical experience to educate the community about the complexities of cancer while breaking down misconceptions surrounding the disease.

Watch our Facebook page for more pop-up locations around Brisbane during August.

This project received grant funding from the Australian Government as part of National Science Week.
