STEM Academy: Wrexham

20th August 2021 @ 10:00 am - 21st August 2021 @ 3:30 pm

A world of activities awaits. Can you aid Danjac the Brave on their epic journey to escape from Knightmare Castle?

A combination of real-world activities and virtual interaction. In the festival booth, there will be a live stream of daring adventurer Danjac the Brave who is trapped in a Welsh castle (in a world created in Minecraft Education Edition).

Participants at the Darganfod // Discover Festival must solve cryptographic challenges to unlock boxes and help our adventurer escape from the castle. When festival participants solve a puzzle, they will be able to unlock a box to reveal a special item (tools, potions, maps) that they can send to Danjac, the Minecraft adventurer, who can use this item to help them progress in their quest. In a 2-way interactive adventure, Danjac will discover puzzles and locked boxes that need to be solved by the finest minds in North East Wales.

Can you help Danjac? Their escape depends on YOU! Think Knightmare meets escape room meets Minecraft.

The activities in the quest will last a day and then we will repeat from the start on day two to a new audience.
