The promotion of innovative problem solving is extremely important within Chemistry. To utilise higher order cognitive skills and process abstract concepts learners increasingly need be engaged in the excitement of the subject using creative application-based exercises. This presentation outlines the implementation of a scenario-based Chemistry “escape room” currently piloting at London Metropolitan University. This 45-minute activity involves students working in small groups to find and solve multidisciplinary hands-on problems based around previously learnt material to obtain parts of a code and subsequently complete the task. It is hoped that colleagues will be inspired to adapt the concept for their own teaching.
