About Physical and Chemical Properties: Escape the Lab! Virtual Lab Simulation

Learning with lives on the line!? In this simulation you will learn about the properties of matter, both physical and chemical. When you find a scientist injured in his lab, you must re-discover his research to evacuate. To combat this planet’s freak weather, you must learn about conductivity, flammability, reactivity, and compressive strength. Putting all this knowledge together, you must make a space suit that can survive a fire tornado!


Escape the Lab!
Material properties are either chemical or physical, and you need to know how to spot the difference. As you work through this lab’s different experiment rooms, it may seem all fun and games but, to escape through the flaming emergency hatch in the finale, you must put all your classifying knowledge to the test.


Classifying Properties.
Immerse yourself and get lost in this escape room style simulation. Here, learning is a consequence of enjoying the story! Dive in head first to this world and surface having learned about how physical and chemical properties make up yours.

Sometimes Dr One can just be a floating metal teacher, but not today – today they’re as lost as you are! Nobody is holding your hand here, this is your adventure!


Put out the fire!
To escape this lab you have to pay attention. Though your explosive explorations have shown you flammable rocks, fizzy metals and unbreakable gems, to get out of the lab you must categorize these into physical or chemical properties. After putting out all the fire, can you unlock the escape hatch puzzle?
