DESCRIPTION: “The Titan’s Rescue” is an ingenuity game in which participants, in teams, must solve a case. To do so, they will have to decipher different ingenuity tests, many of them related to nanoscience. This scientific adventure, designed for schoolchildren from 14 years of age and the general public, lasts 40 minutes and combines elements of gymkhana, role-playing and “escape room” in which participants experiment, learn nanoscience, deduce from our research results and do live science to overcome tests and achieve the goal: rescue the Titan. The participants, playing in teams, must be able to solve the different clues that a thief has left for his accomplice in order to open the hiding place containing his loot: the valuable TITAN microscope.
The main objective has been to arouse interest in science, its knowledge, its development and the results of research through fun, bringing science and innovation closer to the general public from the age of 13, from a close and everyday point of view.
