Cluebox - Escape Room in a Box. Cambridge Labyrinth

  • In the early 19th century the scientific developments in the UK were said to be fruitless. Then it changed when provincial Philosophical Societies started blossoming across the United Kingdom. There people could meet and listen to talks on the latest discoveries and inventions. William Whewell, a fellow of Cambridge University, became one of the founders of Cambridge Philosophical Society in 1819. It transformed major English universities into world-leading centers of scientific research we know today. The term "scientist" had not even existed until William Whewell coined it in 1833. It is believed that there was only one condition to become a member of the Philosophical Society – applicants had to pass the entrance challenge by opening the mechanical box “Cambridge Labyrinth” invented by scientist William Whewell. Now you have an opportunity to face the challenge which used to be the first step for many inventors into the world of science and engineering!
