GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The newest exhibit at the Children's Museum of the Upstate is showcasing the importance of Upstate children getting more healthy.

Many schools throughout the country are involved in the C.A.T.C.H. program, which makes things like eating healthy and exercising more fun for kids.

Now the museum has become the first in the nation to have a whole C.A.T.C.H. display for kids to get fit.

The exhibit contains an XBox Kinect system full of games that require kids to jump and run, a huge life-size game board full of different exercises and tips on getting healthy and a Let's Move section teaching a full choreographed dance routine.

This exhibit is open from June 2 to Sept. 30, 2012 on the third level.

The museum has partnered with Piedmont Health Foundation, The Fortune Family Foundation, LiveWell Greenville, Greenville County School District, and Subway for the exhibit.
