Generation Cures is a new, safe website created by Children’s Hospital Boston as an innovative way to educate kids about the importance of caring and compassion while raising funds for pediatric medical research.
The really cool and different thing is how they are going about it. They have created a safe online experience that offers educational digital content to kids and their families for free. The site’s online puzzle-adventure games, animated web stories and “behind-the-scenes” videos have been designed by experts to help parents teach their kids about altruism and to inspire them to know they can make a difference in the lives of other people. The secret is that it does all this on “kid terms” – in a fun, cool and relatable way. Additionally, the content aims to get kids enthusiastic about the world of medicine and science.
