Project Information
In this curriculum module students are introduced to the heart, its anatomy and the practical function of its parts. Students then apply this knowledge in small groups to create a functioning model heart, with a few common materials and a time constraint. Students exercise their creativity by solving an authentic, open-ended design problem and practice the interpersonal skills required for effective collaboration.
