Students learn how stem cells are like Pokémon and how they are used to heal the body. Students play our STEMinator card game to learn all about different kinds of stem cells that are in the body.
Students learn about bones, muscles, tendons, and how doctors currently treat damage to these tissues. Students construct a model hand and act as surgeons to fix a tendon using a Biomedical Engineering Kit.
Students learn how nerves send and receive messages, and the causes of Parkinson’s disease. Students build medical devices to treat Parkinson’s disease and test the devices on jelly “brains”.
Students learn basic heart anatomy, how a heart attack occurs due to the blockage of a coronary artery, and how to keep their hearts healthy. Students construct a large diagram of the heart which is used to play “Heart Twister”.
