Outbreak: A Neuroscience Escape Room in a Box
There has been an outbreak of a virus across the US! The virus is known as "Giggluenza" and attacks the brain and leads to uncontrollable laughter. The CDC has searched day and night for an answer with no success, so they are turning to you, leading neuroscience researchers, to find the cure! Try your go at hypothesis testing and experimental design to see if you can find the cure. If you don't find the cure in the next 30 minutes, then you will be infected so work quickly!

Recommended for middle schoolers and up.
