This research, funded by the U.S. National Institutes of Health, teaches 9 to 12 year old children to recognize the symptoms of injuries and illness, learn their causes and effects, and how such conditions can be prevented and treated. Educational emphasis is on prevention and self-protective behaviors. Each module is playable independently to facilitate classroom management and to enable children to jump to conditions in which they have a special interest. Adventure-style interactive labs educate children on colds, cuts, sunburn, sprains, stings, choking, tonsillitis, food poisoning, bruises, burns, appendicitis, and flu. To explore the program's impact, we conducted a General Linear Model with repeated measures. Our hypothesis was that while knowledge about self-care issues starts at a similar level among the control and intervention group, their growth paths diverge as the intervention group was exposed to the program. Findings support our hypothesis.
