Need to know Question:
How do infectious diseases constantly outsmart us and continue to threaten human populations around the globe?
To answer this question you'll explore the causes for disease and learn how the body systems work together to fight infection. You'll see how infectious disease is like a game fought between the body and invading pathogens.
The Project
You will dive into the exciting field of game design by creating a proposal for a new game that teaches about infectious disease. Then you'll build a prototype.
First you'll learn some science concepts and then try out a few games before you design your own.
Get Started
Does game design appeal to you as a possible career?
What have you learned about the process?
What are the next steps for you?
