Abstract

Due to their engaging nature, escape rooms are an interesting alternative teaching method. Studies in other fields have shown educational escape rooms to improve motivation and learning. As many conventional escape room puzzles are mechatronic, the concept should also work well for educational purposes in engineering. In this study, an escape room with three mechatronic puzzles is created. The puzzles are designed for high-school students with a combined time limit of 10 minutes. The results are presented as 3D models of the puzzles along with extensive descriptions. A participant survey to analyze the results of the room is also described.
