Sept. 4, 2019 – Encore Electric recently launched a mobile escape room, called “Exit the Room, Enter a Career,” aimed towards providing high school students from Littleton, CO with unique insights into the electrical trade.

The escape room gives students the opportunity to learn about electrical design technology, how electricity works and what it’s like to be an electrician. The attraction features four timed stations, requiring students to wire an outlet, LED lamp, fan and three-way switch. When each station is wired properly, a sign will light up. When all four stations have been wired, a doorbell will ring, signifying their success.

“The point is to make students comfortable while simultaneously sparking their curiosity,” said David Scott, Director of Human Resources at Encore Electric, in a press release. “We have big plans to spark an interest in the electrical career path; it’s a great choice.”

Scott went on to mention that Encore Electric is looking for students that have a natural curiosity and a drive to learn more about how everyday things work. The company hopes that some students that experience the career trailer will eventually choose to enter a career in the electrical trade.

The escape room first made its debut on Aug. 28.
