ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- University of Georgia researchers have received a grant to develop new science education software for elementary school children.

The university says the program will help students learn how the body works and how to make good dietary and exercise choices.

UGA says the five-year, $1.3 million grant is part of the Science Education Partnership Award, or SEPA, program funded by the Office of Research Infrastructure Programs at the National Institutes of Health.

The grant's principal investigator is Georgia Hodges, an assistant research scientist in the UGA College of Education. She says the students will learn about six systems of the body: the cardiovascular, respiratory, nervous, musculoskeletal, endocrine and digestive systems.
