First up, teens have the chance to put their knowledge of popular music, movies, TV shows and books to the test in an all-out virtual trivia battle on Thursday, June 4, at 3 p.m.

"This is the ultimate way to prove your mastery of trivia to your friends," da Costa said.

Fantasy fans can unite for Dungeons & Dragons on Tuesday, June 9, at 3 p.m. In this well-known role-playing tabletop game, players will create fun characters, meet new friends and explore a whole new world. There is no experience required for the creative gaming adventure..

Finally, teens can flex their problem-solving skills and get their blood pumping in a virtual escape room on Thursday, June 11, at 4 p.m. Participants will race to find clues, solve puzzles and unlock mysteries as a team before the clock runs down.

Any teen interested in joining one, or all, of these events — either individually or with a friend or two — should email to get all the details and an official invite.
