More about the CyberQuest problem solving:

CyberQuest begins with a Zoom meeting with your whole group. From there, a surprise character greets everyone and introduces their high-stakes mission – to save the internet from crashing!  Teams will be given the link to their first clue and then divide into their predetermined small teams (4-5 people recommended) to race through clues, puzzles, and a range of challenges that test their ability to work together and think creatively. The goal is to be the first team to reach the finish line by clearing all the levels and entering the final Zoom meeting.
