Modeling the Four-Chamber Heart

Students will design a model of a four-chambered heart

 Students explore the circulatory subsystem within the heart by building a model of the human four-chambered heart. In addition to the biology concepts, students have an opportunity to build electrical circuits and use coding to write a simple program that blinks four LEDs in the order of the filling of each chamber.

Unit 2: Dig it

The Mars Mineral Challenge (Sensing) focuses on programming Rover to sense changes as it covers its track. Students write and run code that uses Rover’s built-in color and distance sensors to control outputs such as LED lights and motors.

Unit 1: Blood Circulation (The Plumber)

Designed for middle school and high school life science.

Rover, Rover - A Dog looking over the TI-Innovator™ Rover robotic vehicle

Rover, Watch Out for Rover!

This project challenges students to experiment with distance, time and speed in an effort to make the TI-Innovator™ Rover robotic vehicle stop just short of a plastic dog (the other “Rover”) placed at a random distance by the teacher.
