AbstractPredictions indicate that there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean by the year 2050. RAP aims to promote awareness of this situation in the group of scholars between 9 and 12 years old with an educative/outreach project, where kids will learn some facts of plastic pollution in the sea on a cross-disciplinary platform. The purpose is to inoculate students with the idea that is with science and collaborative work the way society will find solutions to social and environmental problems. The activity takes one hour but there are previous activities that may take few hours more to try to fit the escape room into a complete school project. The package consists in several files including introductory material for teachers, where they can find a description of the plastic problem in the sea and the instructions on how to develop the activity. Additionally, there is the file to execute the escape room with the series of questions corresponding to four scientific disciplines, which necessarily work together to find the clue to move onto the next step. Accompanying the material, there are badges to identify the students as technicians and scientists of three different disciplines to help the students “feel” what they are supposed to be during the escape room activity. In spite of COVID-19 restrictions, the execution of RAP has been successfully tested in one school. The material is for free and downloadable from, at the moment only available in Spanish
