In this short course we are going to be looking at our organ systems and investigating the bigger picture within our bodies and looking at how our bodies manage to do all those incredible things it does without us having to tell it to – How do we fight off diseases? How does oxygen make its way to the cells that need it? We are going to be looking at our bodies on many different levels as we peel back the layers to discover how each system carries out its job and works alongside the other systems to ensure our bodies function in a dynamic and efficient way to meet all of its needs.
A set of six weekly sessions on organ systems covering – what is an organ system and then exploring the various organ systems in our body. Leaners will benefit from also doing ‘Cells: The Building Blocks of Life’ first, but this can also be a stand alone topic. Week 1: Circulatory and Respiratory systems, week 2: Muscular and Skeletal systems, week 3: Nervous system and homeostasis, week 4: Digestive and Urinary systems, week 5: Immune system and types of pathogen, week 6: Reproductive system and conclusion.
