Microsoft has donated $1.5 million to the Games for Learning Institute, a joint research project of Microsoft and several universities, to study the application of games to teaching science and math to middle-school students.
Microsoft's $1.5 million is being matched by the participating universities, a group including Columbia University, the City University of New York, Dartmouth College, Parsons, Polytechnic Institute of NYU, the Rochester Institute of Technology and Teachers College for a total of $3 million. The consortium will evaluate game prototypes by testing them in 19 New York City area schools.
