Mindshift Escape Rooms, an escape rooms company located in the Adelaide CBD, has released a report discussing the cognitive and logistical benefits of incorporating escape rooms into STEM education for children.

The new report by Mindshift Escape Rooms cites a study conducted by D'Youville College which found that escape rooms aid students in developing critical team-based skills, which are valuable both in the classroom and in STEM places of work.

In a time of increasing technological advances, the academic field of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) is more important than ever. However, interest in the field is declining as outdated teaching methods fail to inspire students and lead to increasing cases of burnout. With the new report, Mindshift Escape Rooms draw attention to the potential of new and innovative ways of reigniting interest in STEM.

Data from leading universities reveals that incorporating play into the classroom can tackle issues of learning fatigue by increasing student motivation, and sharpening focus and creativity. Play encourages risk-taking, new ways of thinking, total immersion in the task at hand, decreases self-consciousness and increases feelings of agency and control.

The latest report sees Mindshift Escape Rooms respond to this data by illustrating how escape rooms are successful in improving STEM engagement through play. Theoretical and practical STEM problems presented as clues and puzzles can help students grasp multiple core concepts. Escape rooms provide an opportunity to incorporate physical elements of gamification into the classroom environment, creating a unique arena in which to practice problem-solving.

The skills required for escape rooms are not only useful to STEM subjects but can also be applied to real-world situations. Teamwork and logical thinking are crucial skills in any environment and escape rooms help to hone these exact skills. The report also claims that escape rooms are effective in sharpening experimental skills, encouraging collaboration, and promoting student engagement.

With its new report, Mindshift Escape Rooms continues its dedication to providing engaging and challenging escape room experiences to residents of Adelaide. Themed escape rooms draw from fictional and paranormal settings including a haunted manor, monster mystery, time travel, and remote jungles.

Dr Bisulfi, the Lead Researcher of the study at D'Youville College, said: "…gamification of final exams via building a thematic escape room [is] a successful approach that can be easily adapted from Genetics to any subject with an intense problem-solving component, inside and outside of STEM.”
