The Science of Me

Participating students will spend time exploring human biology through hands-on activities and experiments.

The human body is made of complex systems that are constantly working to complete tasks such as breathing, running, and even picking up a pencil. Our nervous system runs the show, our muscular system gets us where we need to go, and our digestive system fuels us from head to toe. Without our body systems working in harmony, we would not be able to function. From the building blocks of life to organ systems, students will develop a deeper understanding of the human body.
