Caduceus Quest is an adventure-oriented role-playing game (RPG) that invites players to explore science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) careers. This prototype introduces the player to RPG-style character classes that include doctor, epidemiologist, statistician, and civil engineer. The game's narrative focuses on a medical mystery that the protagonist, Simone, must solve.

The Game Changer Chicago Design Lab team is currently playtesting the prototype and evaluating its effectiveness in promoting STEM education, before moving into a full phase of development.
