‘Escape Malta’ turns kids into researchers

Are you someone between the age of 14 and 18 who loves both games and science? In early September, the University of Malta will be hosting an immersive role-play game that combines the two! Dubbed ‘Escape Malta’, it builds on escape room style experiences that ask players to solve a series of puzzles in order to move through a storyline and physically escape the room.

In this event, players will take on the role of a university researcher aiming to find the reason behind – and then escape from – a fictional public health crisis. The puzzles will cover a range of STEM fields such as biology, maths and computer science and allow kids to discover their inner scientist.

Some of the highlights include the programming of a simple robot, and learning how Google finds the quickest routes across a network of roads. Do you want to find out how this ties into the story? Then sign up via and pass this on if you know someone wanting to be part of the next generation of scientists!

Escape Malta is part of the EU wide STEAM (funded by the ERASMUS+ Programme of the European Union) and CREATIONS (funded by the Horizon2020 Framework of the European Commission) projects.
