In this class we learn about 11 body systems that work together to keep us alive. We look at the organs in each system that range in size, shape and weight, exploring why our skin is our largest organ, how our lungs are the only organ that can float on water and that one of our kidneys is about the size of a computer mouse. To better understand our anatomy and physiology, students create life-size models and artistically construct 3D models to demonstrate some of our body processes. No prior anatomy experience is required.
Note: This class is designed for high school students, and is designed to inspire young women to pursue careers in STE[+a]M.
