Escape Room STEM Challenge
Teamwork makes the dream work with Wiseminds Escape Rooms
On the 15th of January, a group of year 9 students took part in an escape room type challenge. We were split into groups of 6-8 people. We solved a number of puzzles and challenges, had to find keys, open briefcases and locks. We had 45 minutes to escape which improved our ability to work timed situations under pressure. This taught us to communicate and work as a team. We can use these skills in other lessons and in life.
Thank you to the Science department and Wiseminds Escape Rooms who organised this event.
