Here’s what attendees had to say about Escape Velocity 2017:

“I loved the activities I could do. I love to cosplay. I loved the escape room. I played a lot of starship horizon.”
“It was very different from my normal convention experience; there was much more focus on the SCIENCE part of science fiction.”
“The literature track was excellent with a great mix of authors and critics.”
“I especially appreciated the effort to put woman and people of color in prominent positions. Brava!”
“It was fantastic to meet teachers that have found a way to use Sci-Fi to teach their respective contents. I would recommend other educators attend this conference.”
“I enjoyed how low key and stress free the experience was.”
