Using a unique combination of tubing, pumps, and one-way valves, student teams compete to model the heart's pumping action and gain a better understanding of how blood circulation works in the body. Students construct models of blood flow through a closed-loop system and perform a series of increasingly complex design challenges to demonstrate their knowledge of how vessels, heart valves, and contracting chambers work together.

Using a unique combination of tubing, pumps, and one-way valves, student teams compete to model the heart's pumping action and gain a better understanding of how blood circulation works in the body. Students construct models of blood flow through a closed-loop system and perform a series of increasingly complex design challenges to demonstrate their knowledge of how vessels, heart valves, and contracting chambers work together. The 8-Station Kit (item #691003) is designed for a class of 32 students working in groups of 4. The 1-Station Kit (item #691004) is designed for 4 students working in a single group.

 
 
 
 
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Engaging and encourages deeper understanding My Anatomy students enjoyed this activity. It did force them to think and struggle a bit, but they were able to be successful, and improve their work over time. It's rare to find a quality inquiry & engineering activity in Human Anatomy, and this is a great activity to meet those standards. I gave four stars on Ease of Use because my students did have trouble fitting the tubing together on some of the connectors, but that's necessary to achieve a tighter fit with less leaks. You will need at least two days of class (50 minute periods) to complete this lesson.
