Note that this schedule is subject to change.

A the PLC, Hollan had a Breakout/Escape Room type game set up. There were 6 locks on the box and it took us around 40-45 minutes to complete without using any of our three hints. Before the meeting, Hollan hid the clues around the basement for us to find. The clues gave us hints to unlock the locks on the box and get the cookies from inside. After cookies and milk, we went outside for a few minutes and went to the park.
