16 Dec 2022




Test your GCSE Physics knowledge in an online escape room.

A security guard stands in front of a large glass-fronted facility and users are prompted to solve the first challenge.

RAL Space collaborated with Dr Dan Cooper from TestTube Revise to create a virtual escape room as an interactive revision resource.​ The content has been designed for GCSE, National 5 and Junior Cycle Physics course curricula.

Students are challenged to recover a password to access vital data for launching a new spacecraft. The password components are found by using physics skills, solving equations and exploring RAL Space's laboratories and facilities for clues. Throughout the game students can also learn about RAL Space projects and meet some of the teams to find out what their jobs involve, highlighting a range of career pathways and opportunities.

Participants are encouraged to provide feedback in a short survey.

The project was funded and supported by the Institution of Engineering and Technology and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers.​
