Take a journey into the human body as you examine your heaviest organ (your skin!), find out how to make your memory better, and learn how the heart pumps blood. We’ll continue our fun in the lab as we grow polymer brains, examine a real sheep heart, made a model lung, and extract DNA from a banana.  


Club topics later in the school year include Earth's Mysteries and Magical Mixtures.
