Artificial Lung!

Today students played the role of bioengineers and were faced with the task of designing and building a model of an artificial lung. After learning about the structures and function of the respiratory system, students selected appropriate building materials and assembled a working model of a human lung. In science, building models is a great way to truly understand how a complex system really works.

The average person takes over 23,000 breaths a day but did you ever stop to really think about how we breathe? Take a deep breath and have your student explain what is happening as the air enters your nose. Make sure they don’t forget to tell you about the diaphragm, the muscle that is responsible for each breath that we take!
