The Circulatory System
10:00am 15th Feb
Not only does the circulatory system keep our cells healthy, but it also keeps us alive. The circulatory system, also known as the cardiovascular system, is a vast network of organs and blood vessels that acts both as a delivery and waste removal system for the body.
The Nervous Sytem
11:00am 15th Feb
Your nervous system is your body’s command centre. The nervous system includes the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) which are connected to a complex network of nerves. This system sends messages back and forth between the brain and the body. Your ability to respond to stimuli and perform a reflex depends on it.
The Endocrine System
10:00am 16th Feb
Your endocrine system is made up of several organs called glands. These glands, located all over your body, create and secrete (release) hormones. Hormones are chemicals that coordinate different functions in your body by carrying messages through your blood to your organs, skin, muscles and other tissues. These signals tell your body what to do and when to do it.
11:00am 16th Feb
Why do you look like your parents? Inheritance is the process by which genetic information is passed on from parent to child. This is why members of the same family tend to have similar characteristics. Genetic crosses can be shown and examined using Punnett squares. This shows the possible offspring combinations that could be produced, and the probability of these combinations can be calculated.
10:00am 17th Feb
Half human - half lizard? Genetic engineering is also called genetic modification or GM. It involves modifying the genome of an organism by introducing a gene from another organism to result in a desired characteristic.
Plant Transport Systems
11:00am 17th Feb
The tallest tree in the world is 116m tall! How can essential substances be transported so high?! Plants have two systems for the transportation of substances, by using two different types of transport tissue. Water and minerals are transported by the xylem from the roots to the leaves, while sugars are transported by the phloem from the leaves to the rest of the plant. Transpiration is the process by which water evaporates from the leaves, therefore causing more water to be drawn up from the roots.
