November 10

Join us on 10th Nov (11am) as we showcase our Escape room live lesson activity ‘Locked in the DATA base’ as part of Computer Science Scotland week.

Briefing for Trainee DATA Agents: You were working late on paperwork from your recent DATA mission and you’ve realised that you’ve been locked in the base. Solve the puzzles to get out without setting off the alarm.

Description of learners’ task: Learners use graphs and tables of data about theme park rides to answer questions. The answers to the questions provide them with the alarm code to be able to escape the base.

Resources that learners will require:

  • Access to a calculator or calculator app
  • Rollercoaster data sheets (printed or electronic) – one copy between 2-3 learners
  • Questions Worksheet (printed or electronic) – one copy between 2-3 learners

There is also an optional pre-activity logic puzzle, also available on our website.
