Engineering the Heart as a Pump and Heart Dissection Lab

Exploring the function of the heart

In this fun and hands-on lab, students will research and engineer a pump that can move water from one beaker another beaker without touching the system. Next, students will learn about the four chambers of the heart, and how it acts like a pump. After the students diagram the movement of blood throughout the heart, the students will scrub in and dissect a cow heart. I always finish each of my labs with a quiz that indicates what each student has learned!
