If you visit a dorm at any college in the country you are very likely to find a couple of students with controllers in their hands focused on a video game and totally oblivious to the rest of the world.

While most people frown at the amount of time kids spend playing video games, some students are using their video game experience to help others. Colleges are taking the passion students have for video games and challenging them to develop video games that can enhance the lives of children with Autism.

Check out this video about Michigan Engineering students developing video games for kids with autism.
