An Adventure Inside the Human Body
To learn science, high school students are entering an alien world — the human circulatory system. Funded by the Kauffman Foundation, Immune Attack is an educational 3-D video game that teaches the basic concepts of immunology in an exciting way that engages the students interest.
Designed by the Federation of American Scientists with the help of
teachers, immunologists, and experts in learning, Immune Attack
balances accuracy of the scientific concepts with the excitement of
experiencing those topics in a new way.
The goal of the game is to pilot a nanobot through the circulatory network and immune system to save the life of a sick patient. In order to advance through the game, the players train white blood cells, follow a chemical trail to the infection site, recognize the invading germs, and target and destroy the bacteria. As they fight to save the patient, they learn key principles and detailed concepts about how the immune system works.
