Help Us Bring Cave Bro to Life!
FLVS has launched a Kickstarter campaign to help raise funds to make Cave Bro a reality!

We need your help! 

Who is Cave Bro? He is the main character in a fun mobile game the Florida Virtual School (FLVS) Curriculum Innovation Team is hoping to develop to help teach kids about nutrition and exercise!   

The game is not fully developed yet, but we are hoping to raise the funds necessary to make this idea a reality!

 Cave Bro's Nutrition Will Be Up To The Students

So what is Cave Bro all about? 

In the game, students will be able to customize and interact with their own Cave bro (or Bro-ette). Making the right nutrition and exercise choices will earn students coins to buy things for Cave Bro’s cave and advance in the game. The goal of this game is to help students learn about the importance of healthy living, while having a little fun.

  

To learn more or help us reach our fundraising goal, visit the Cave Bro Kickstarter page.
