Y11 Human Biology General

Today had David Reid who is a paramedic and lecturer at ECU visit our lesson.  We talked about the respiratory and circulatory system and got to use his ECG machine to measure our heart rate, oxygen and carbon dioxide levels in the body.  Students talked to David about his fascinating career as a paramedic and learnt so much from his experiences.

I had lots of fun too as David has a great sense of humour.

Musculoskeletal System

The ATAR Y11 Human Biology students performed a chicken wing dissection to help associate the musculoskeletal system in humans. They discovered that pulling on the tendons would flap the wings.
