Science video game designed to teach middle school students about bacteria and viruses.

“You Make Me Sick!” a science learning video game, recently won a $50,000 grand prize in the 2010 National National Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Video Game Challenge. The game is co-developed by assistant professor of special education Matthew Marino and Filament Games in Madison, Wis. “The game is about bacteria and viruses,” Marino said. “It’s designed to teach middle school kids about (pathogens) in alliance with national science standards.” In “You Make Me Sick!,” students design a specific type of bacteria or virus within the game and try to get a human host as sick as possible, Marino said.
