The electromagnetism escape room is an immersive experience for your students. It allows them to demonstrate their knowledge of electromagnetic energy in a fun and engaging format.
MS PS2-3 - Ask questions about data to determine the factors that affect the strength of electric and magnetic forces.
MS PS2-5 - Conduct an investigation and evaluate the experimental design to provide evidence that fields exist between objects exerting forces on each other even though the objects are not in contact.
A Unique Escape Room Experience:
Unlike many escape rooms, the teacher is in total control on which of the 8 puzzles they want to use and in which order to use them. Each puzzle is independent of the others. This is great for shorter or longer class periods.
