The Retro Detectives Program is a summer, Breakout Box based, gaming series wherein the students (for ages 9 and up) will use clues and riddles to solve the mysteries and discover the hidden, the bizarre, and the sublime history of Brooklyn. The goal of this program is to give the students a hands-on understanding of Brooklyn history while engaging their critical and creative thinking skills over the summer months in six separate branch locations throughout Brooklyn. This also brings the concept of the escape room to a smaller scale, encouraging group work to break through the tougher clues and unravel the mystery.

Retro Detectives is brought to you by the folks at Brooklyn Connections and Youth and Family Services.
