Biomedical Engineering 7-25

Students continued their exploration of the human heart, and finished constructing their life size models. After construction, they were able to troubleshoot any issues their model had, and reflect on the process of designing and constructing the heart. Using what they learned from building their individual heart models, the students worked together as a class to design and construct a large heart model, about 10 times the size of an actual heart. Next, students continued their exploration of range of motion, this time measuring each joint after 30 minutes of exercise. The last activity for today was continuing construction of the BristleBot, which was started yesterday.

Ask your student: What went well when you were building your heart model? What things did not work as you planned? How did you apply this knowledge to building the large class model of the heart?
