Escape rooms for education

Background

Since 2017 Logos has been developing and actively sharing the idea of using escape rooms for educational purposes. Escape rooms are usually used for fun and entertainment, but we decided that they can be an interesting tool when speaking about important and serious topics such as human rights. We implemented several training courses since then and taught around 200 youth workers on how to build their own escape rooms for education.

What is the escape room?

Escape rooms are live-action, team-based games where players discover clues, solve puzzles, and accomplish tasks in one or more rooms in order to accomplish a specific goal (usually escaping from the room) in a limited amount of time. Escape rooms develop creativity, communication, logic, problem-solving skills, analytical skills and are great for team-building.

Escape rooms for education

It is possible to include important educational messages into the room’s story, environment, puzzles, everything! When creating escape rooms for education we speak about human rights education and other important issues. We have a goal of educating youth workers around the Europe on how to build escape rooms and use them for educational purposes.

Toolboxes

In each of the project description, one can find toolboxes, that were made at various projects. Each toolbox contains scenario of escape room, plan of the room, description of puzzles as well as pictures of the room. If needed anyone can use these toolboxes to build similar rooms anywhere. And if you need help, we are ready to support you. Just write us at [email protected].
