Abstract

Our project aimed to increase student engagement in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) by creating a mystery room for Banksia Gardens Community Services. We developed an iterative design-feedback process after researching professional escape room design methodology. Our room incorporated activities for multiple learning types with auditory, visual, and kinesthetic puzzles. From our observations, we found the mystery room engages all learning types and therefore has potential to be used as an educational tool in the future.
