Immune Attack Video GameTeachable Moment: How often can you say a video game is truly educational?  This one was created by the Federation of American Scientists with support from the NIH, NSF, NIAID, among others and is a great way of bringing the immune system to life!

 

You must navigate a nanobot through a 3D environment of blood vessels and connective tissue in an attempt to save an ailing patient by retraining her non-functional immune cells. Along the way, you will learn about the biological processes that enable macrophages and neutrophils – white blood cells – to detect and fight infections.
