Escape Lab at the British Science Festival: a brief update

We had a great time running the Escape Lab activity at the British Science Festival in Leicester on 16th September 2022.

Based on our research, this lab-themed escape room activity allowed teams of up to six to solve clues and find our new antiviral compound. Following an incredibly busy evening, with a total of 10 teams taking part, all our teams successfully found our antiviral drug - check how your team fared on the leaderboard!

Our aims were to bring our research to children and adults alike, and inspire a career in science and science-related fields. We had great engagement and overwhelmingly positive feedback, and hope to bring this activity to different venues across the UK in the near future.

If you are interested in hosting Escape Lab, or would like to learn more about the activity and our research, please do get in touch!
