Meet the Innovations for Health Competition Finalists!

Today, 15 competition finalists have been identified as outlining the most promising solutions.

A further issue is that video games are usually serious in nature with the principal focus on learning rather than amusement. Although, we have an entertainment part to keep the kids engaged, each game is generally designed to develop a specific expertise or area, such as mathematics or scientific discipline. Thanks for your post.
