Nintendo is going from the living room to the classroom.
It's partnering with education nonprofit Institute of Play to bring some of its products to a hundred elementary school classrooms across the U.S.
The goal is to help kids build communication and critical thinking skills in science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics-- also known as STEAM.
It's offering the 'Switch,' a handheld and home console, and 'LABO Kits,' a series of "do it yourself" projects that allow kids to build things out of cardboard.
They include remote-controlled cars, fishing rods and pianos.
Interested schools can apply for the program.
