To promote Action-1 in the Italian PLS Project on Gender Equality in STEM, interdisciplinary teaching activities for High School students were developed in the 2019–2021 period. These activities were conceived in such a way that the laboratory practice could be linked not only to technical or scientific contents but also to historical or sociological topics according to the Inquiry methodology. During laboratory sessions, besides carrying out ordinary experimental activities on carefully selected topics, students had the chance to learn about the biography of some female scientists whose research activities were related to these topics. Part of the activities was designed as an escape room process: students were guided through the maze by the relation existing between a female scientist and the relevant physics topic.
