Kids Outdoor Adventures
Imagine you and your kids are deep in the California wilderness where the enclosed 'Biosphere Project' is in desperate need of repair. Can you fix the water system and clean the air? Puzzles and clues will lead you to the tools and information you need with points and rewards along the way. Thanks to a team of masters students from the UCSB Bren School, you can be the very first to experience this outdoor game inspired by the popular "escape room" movement. Their project, BranchOut, reimagines outdoor activities through these challenges that kids and families work on together. Games are brought to life where kids are the heroes on a quest to solve an environmental mission before time runs out.
The team was inspired by their experiences working with children and listening to parents. As many working towards a better future, they realized the key to a healthy environment is to make sure that today's kids grow up with a positive experience and connection to the outdoors. A fortuitous meeting with the Garden's Director of Education at the Children in Nature Conference led to the Garden's support of BranchOut.
Calling all families! Join the pilot project in February and help the BranchOut team fine tune the experience!
