Research and Technology

The Health Quest Adventure Game is a personalized learning environment that uses artificial intelligence-driven technologies to engage adolescents’ interest in health science careers. It leverages two complementary families of AI technologies, intelligent tutoring systems and intelligent interactive narrative technologies, to create immersive health science career adventures personalized to students’ individual abilities and interests.

Research Goals

The project’s research centers on investigating the impact of Health Quest on middle school students’ knowledge of, interest in, and self-efficacy for pursuing careers in health science fields, particularly for underrepresented groups. Health Quest will be pilot tested and used in classrooms across North Carolina and California and will also be featured in informal learning settings including the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences and in after-school programs in San Francisco.
