Minneapolis start-up wins federal grant to develop educational biology game


A small Minneapolis start-up that makes educational games has been awarded a federal grant to develop apps to help students learn difficult science and math concepts.

Andamio Games and two science educators at the University of Minnesota will use the $150,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to design a series of tablet-based lessons for high school and college biology.

Improving science, technology, engineering and math education has been a stated priority of the Obama administration. The U.S. could face a shortage of 3 million high-skilled workers by 2018 as fewer American students master difficult math and science concepts, and the nation ranks below many developed countries in math and science education.
