3. Increases Communication And Social Ability

As a group of kids playing an escape room game, even if it's over the internet, good social interaction and communication are a must.

A fancy terminology for acquiring new knowledge. As we venture into the unknown of a temple or a science lab, for example, we are taken away from the real world temporarily. We suddenly find ourselves in a situation where we are urged to take on new knowledge, of this alternative world, and apply it in unique and interesting ways.
