Session 4 Build a Battery of Batteries Come explore the physics and chemistry of simple batteries! Session 5 Build a Better Motor We’ll start by taking apart a spring-powered motor to see how it stores and releases energy, and then we’ll take apart a small electric motor to see how the magnets, wire coils, and electrical connections are arranged. Session 6 Wire It Up! Using a shoebox, discarded holiday lights, and some simple tools, you and your students can create and wire a model building complete with switches. Download Session PDF
Photo Gallery of Anatomy Models Labeling, design and programming by Leif Saul. Photos by Leif Saul, Chris Landis, and Robert Donovan. Note 1: You can zoom in on these models. Control-click (on a Mac) or right-click (on a Windows computer) until the pop-up menu appears, then choose "zoom in" from the menu. When it is zoomed in, you can drag the image around with the mouse. Note 2: The choice of labeled structures does not necessarily indicate what you are responsible for. Note 3: Each model photo now offers several labeling options.

Anatomy Guides for ligs, joints, muscles of diff body segments Introduction At first, the elbow seems like a simple hinge. But when the complexity of the interaction of the elbow with the forearm and wrist is understood, it is easy to see why the elbow can cause problems when it does not function correctly. Part of what makes us human is the way we are able to use our hands. Effective use of our hands requires stable, painless elbow joints. This guide will help you understand what parts make up the elbowhow those parts work together Important Structures The important structures of the elbow can be divided into several categories. bones and jointsligaments and tendonsmusclesnervesblood vessels Bones and Joints The bones of the elbow are the humerus (the upper arm bone), the ulna (the larger bone of the forearm, on the opposite side of the thumb), and the radius (the smaller bone of the forearm on the same side as the thumb). Articular cartilage is the material that covers the ends of the bones of any joint. Ligaments and Tendons Muscles Nerves Blood Vessels
Build-A-Body Overview Learn about the body's systems with this drag and drop game. Choose organs from the organ tray, and place them in their correct position within the body to create organ systems. Build-A-Body is a drag and drop game where players are tasked with assembling an organ system from a set of organs. Players may then attempt case studies where a functional problem with a system must be linked to the organ affected. How to play Build-a-Body Choose organs from the organ tray, drag and drop them in their correct position within the body to build each system. Teaching with Build-a-Body Build-a-body is an awesome tool to introduce and teach concepts of human anatomy and human physiology. Early Childhood Education with Build-a-Body Where does my food go?
