Here’s Great Tip: Innovative Teacher Turned Entrepreneur | Gabriel Palacios | TEDxBern


Here is Something You Should See…


Getting the attention of students is hard. Gabriel Palacios did so by locking them into a cellar. He challenged them to find their way out by solving riddles and it jump-started them into asking questions. When the parents heard about his method, they wanted to play the game of riddles as well. That was when the idea turned into the start up Adventure Room.

Born in Bern as the son of Spanish parents, Gabriel is a passionate teacher of science and Spanish at Hofwil high school. He loves travelling to distant countries and learning weird languages. He visited Australia, Mexico, Thailand and Iran with the Swiss Physics Olympics team, first as a participant and later as president. During a sabbatical, he chose to visit Chernobyl, Hiroshima, Fukushima and North Korea. The AdventureRooms, an educational game which he initially set up for his students in 2012, became a worldwide success.
