Entertainment Software Association Foundation awards grant to FAS for immune attack
Date:9/30/2008

k to teachers and students across the U.S.," said Michelle Lucey-Roper, director of the Learning Technologies Program. "FAS will use this grant to improve the game design for learning and encourage students to consider careers in bioscience, medicine and other health care professions."

FAS's interest in games emerged from research that shows advanced learning technologies, such as video games and computer simulations, can help address one of the nation's most pressing needs -- strengthening education and preparing workers for 21st century jobs.

Immune Attack builds on insights from FAS's Learning Science and Technology Research and Development Roadmap, the FAS report "Harnessing the Power of Video Games for Learning", and the Digital Opportunity Investment Trust (DO IT) -- a proposal to transform learning and training for the 21st century. These recommendations led to the authorization of the National Center for Research in Advanced Information and Digital Technologies.

FAS launched the prototype of Immune Attack in May 2008. Immune Attack was created by FAS in collaboration with teams of game developers, instructional designers, immunologists, teachers, and learning scientists including Brown University, the University of Southern California, and Escape Hatch Entertainment.

The ESA Foundation awarded nine different organizations $1 million in grants. The financial awards are intended to support the chosen organizations in developing youth-focused programs for education, health and safety.
