Nintendo is making its way from the living and entertainment room, to the classroom.
It’s partnering with education nonprofit “Institute of Play” to bring some of its products to 100 elementary school classrooms across the United States.
The goal is to help kids build communication and critical thinking skills in science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics, also known as “STEAM”.
It’s offering the switch, a handheld and home console, and labo kits, a series of “Do It Yourself” projects that allow kids to build things out of cardboard.
They include remote-controlled cars, fishing rods and pianos. Interested schools can apply for the program.
