College of Charleston educators win $1.2 million grant for kids to create movement-based video games

A couple of College of Charleston educators are hoping to hook kids on STEM by playing on their interest in popular movement-based video games, such as Dance, Dance Revolution.

Susan and Mike Flynn, a husband and wife team who teach at the college, wrote a proposal with two Purdue University professors and landed a $1.2 million National Science Foundation grant this fall. The money will go toward involving local kids in creating and developing exergames, or the kind that get them up and moving.
