Dance Dance Revolution "evolves" to teach kids about DNA

This photo from Flickr is from the Scripps Aquarium in San Diego. I have to go there and play DNA DDR! With this game the distopia in the movie Gattaca would have been a lot more fun because the genetic have-nots in the movie could have danced out the genetic code that would have brought them acceptance and good jobs. Give me an A! Give me a C! Give me a T! Give me a G!

My favorite is this quote from the caption -
The best part was when one of the 20 amino acids were built, it would say the name. So you'd see A T T G C and so on... and then it would shout "Cysteine!"
