Doctor Smithkins has gone missing.

She left no note, and her important research has vanished as well. It seems she was caught in a vast conspiracy in the scientific world, and each answer only leads to more questions. But I’ve already said too much…

Because of your creativity, your stamina and your fantastic intellect, we have personally selected you to assemble a team and rescue the professor. In doing so, you will save our research – and untold lives.

We know that she went missing somewhere in Cambridge.

It is your job to retrace her steps. Journey throughout the city and  learn as much as you can about her friends and foes.

Should you accept your challenge, you’ll be briefed in a top-secret central Cambridge location. You’ll have 3 hours to follow the clues, solve the experiments, and solve the mystery.

Did the physicists hold a grudge against her? Was there a mishap in the chemistry department? Did she discover a whole other reality? We don’t know, and there’s only one way to find out the truth.

It’s a race against time… it’s a Race for Science!
