Here are the resources for my second escape room that I made for my National 5 Physics class after their revision topic. All of it can be adjusted to differentiate, I just don’t have the time just now.
Sorry to those at the SSERC/ IoP Summer School who got anything wrong because I’d made a mistake, as you saw, it is a bit of a logistical nightmare.
First I’ll try to list what I bought, but you can do it your own way, and for a cheap version each group could bring you the answer to one task and that collects the next.

Task Sheet- some work needs to be done here!
Now the task sheets, edit away and make them yours. Please feed back all my mistakes, I’ve sorted task 3, where for some reason the number in the answers (and hence the lock) didn’t match the activity value in the question- whoops!
