Cisco's Mars Classroom Simulator Challenge at the ISTE 2019 conference, is an escape room that requires participants to work together to solve a problem in a fictional scenario on the planet Mars. The idea is to give teachers a chance to engage in the same collaborative, hands-on learning experiences they want students to have. The simulator also facilitates the development of problem-solving skills, which is a critical component of a 21st-century skill set.
