QUEST is a classroom subscription that uses gaming concepts familiar to students while developing their ability to think critically and solve problems.
Each year, a new season of QUEST is launched, immersing students in a new storyline. Each season of QUEST contains 7 Episodes designed to be played over the course of the class semester.
There are two unique ways to experience QUEST
Season 1 is built around the ISTE Standards for students. Each month’s QUEST box will directly reflect one of the standards and give students a hands-on experience of that standard.
Learn more about each episode of the Cataclysm QUEST
Our first season is set in a post-apocalyptic world where all adults have suddenly vanished. Students must work together to rebuild society and survive the myriad of challenges that lie ahead in their new world. Teachers role-play as an all-knowing Artificial Intelligence robot to assist their students as they embark on each month's QUEST.

What is the ideal age group to play with?
Can a tribe have more than 5 people?
Can you reuse the box? (Physical Subscription)
If you are subscribed to the physical version, you will be sent a physical edition of each episode. As long as you put everything back in the box after use, these boxes can be used multiple times. Some items may need you to print additional copies which are all provided on our subscription platform.
When will the boxes arrive? (Physical Subscription)
Boxes are typically shipped within 30 days of purchasing our subscription. If you are pre-purchasing for next school year, they will arrive in September of that school year.
What if my boxes don't arrive? (Physical Subscription)
How does this work if I teach multiple class periods?
Your digital or physical subscription allows you to have 5 seperate classes run QUEST. If you teach more than 5 classes that you would like to use QUEST with, email us at email@example.com and ask for additional class slots. QUEST logins should not be shared with other teachers to facilitate with thier classrooms.
Can we play all episodes at once?
Every few weeks, a new episode will be unlocked to be playable on our online portal. This is to ensure students cannot find spoilers or answers to challenges from other teams around the country. That means you cannot play episodes until they have been unlocked. However, if you are behind our launch schedule, you can catch up and play multiple episodes in a row until you get to the most current episode.
Digital VS Physical
We have two ways to experience QUEST. Our more affordable option is to subscribe to our Digital experience. This provides access to allow your students to experience QUEST entirely using computers. This can be done either virtually on a video call, or preferably, in the classroom with a class set of laptops.
How long does each episode box take to complete?
Are there hints to help if students are stumped?
What do students need to play each Episode?
It is recommended that each team of students playing has access to at least 1 computer with internet access. As the facilitator, you will also need access to a device with internet that is logged into our teacher portal. We encourage adding any visuals to your classroom to immerse them into the story!
What if the experience is too easy/hard?
Can QUEST be played virtually?
Short answer, yes! If you take advantage of our digital subscritpion of QUEST, you can essentially play episodes 1 through 6 over video calls with your students. It is recommended that you have experience with managing virtual breakout rooms prior to attemping this though. For optimal experiences, we recommend in-class!
What are "Episodes"?
When you subsribe to QUEST, you will recieve access to 7 digital or physical boxes that will be played in chronilogical order over 7 months. These boxes are called episodes! Each episode progresses the storyline, while providing new challenges for your students to overcome.
What class/subject is ideal to use QUEST?
QUEST is designed to work in any subject area or classroom that hopes to incorporate critical thinking and problem solving in their classroom! We encourage teachers to create lessons around their subject area using the world of QUEST. Additionally, QUEST is great for afterschool programs or electives.
