Our ‘All Systems Go’ module focuses on the human body; its uniqueness and what is needed to keep it healthy. This session helps students understand why maintaining a healthy body and brain is the key to leading an active and productive life and gives them the tools to make sure they stay healthy.
Inside a futuristic machine ‘The Venture’, the Captain and his crew take the class on a tour of the human body. Travelling through the blood we explore the functions of various body parts and how magnificent the human body really is. The students discuss issues and engage in activities centred on:
Factors that influence the function of the body systems such as nutrition, exercise and drugs
The impact food choices have on health and energy levels
Exploring ways to manage peer pressure
The effects of second-hand smoking
The function of vital organs (heart, lungs, brain, kidneys)
