Albert Schweitzer Elementary School, a public school in Levittown in Bucks County, won $12,500 to launch a series of educational video games that the school developed for students with developmental disabilities, according to a release.
The grant was awarded by the New York City-based Entertainment Software Association Foundation as part of its second annual Education Challenge Grant. Albert Schweitzer was among three schools that won grants of varying amounts. Sixteen schools from across the country applied for the grants.
The project, called Primary Life Skills and Technology, aims to help students with developmental disabilities improve their reading, writing, math, communication, and social skills using Microsoft’s Kinect for Xbox, as well as the SMART Table and SMART Board, according to a release.
