NYC Treasure Hunt
The ultimate NYC puzzle
The journey is the reward, but the treasure is the prize!
Classrooms are an amazing part of the learning journey for any individual. They offer safe spaces for a wide range of simulations and theoretical exploration. The outside world provides the compliment. An opportunity to practice adapting to the unpredictability of our ever-changing surroundings. Real-world dynamic problem solving and strategy implementation will be essential to completing the stages of this challenge!
Did the last high constable of NYC discover one of the many clues left behind by the Pirate of Pearl Street? Private notes that have recently been uncovered indicate that there's a treasure yet to be discovered.

Unlock Solve Theory
A true New Yorker you may be,
Nay, not by your time of occupancy,
But by awareness of the rule of three,
And the learning of her history.
Circular Path Theory
There is a book that holds a page
That reveals the location of the Mage,
Wise and magical through and through,
You'll be led to the Warrior and Healer too.
A to B Theory
Here your journey will come to end
Unless your able to distend
Your point of view and imagination
To overrule the biases of confirmation!
Escape the Classroom is a program in the C.A.R.E. network. C.A.R.E. stands for Communities Acquiring Resources for Education. This treasure hunt will bring out the detective in all who participate and Sherlock Holmes himself would need a team of experts to overcome all of the barriers to finding the prize.
A strong team knows the importance
of STEM, History and the Arts,
and that sometimes, the end
is exactly where the journey starts.
Remember always that this should be fun,
and that your hunt has technically already begun!
