Stepping through DNA: learning through dance steps

Lose weight and learn DNA structures at the same time – sounds good to me. In yet another example of (sort-of) serious games, Dance Dance Revolution stepping game (or more likely the open source StepMania) has been adapted to use DNA base symbols as direction pads in a game, where correct dance sequence will cause a call-out for the matching DNA structure.

If played enough, the correct sequences might actually be remembered on a motor, rather than intellectual level. Sort of like memorizing Pi through poetry or Total Physical Response for languages.
