Shows how the cerebellum coordinates muscle activity and how position sensors in the muscles and joints and the balancing mechanism of the inner ear function. The motions of a water-skier show the physical, interconnected structure of muscles, joints, and organs. The role of joints is explained, and a look at the interior of a human knee shows clearly how lubricating fluid is produced.
The Magic School Bus is an award winning animated children’s television series based on the book series of the same title by Joanna Cole and Bruce Degen. It is notable for its use of celebrity talent and being both highly entertaining and educational. Ms. Frizzle takes the class with her when she brings the Magic School Bus to the body shop for repairs. While there, Ralphie wants to use extra parts at the shop to make a robot. Ms. Frizzle then teaches the class how bones, muscles and joints all work together to help us move.
Explores the major characteristics of the skeletal and muscular systems. Discusses the number of bones in the human body, describes their different shapes and sizes, and illustrates how bones need muscles to move. Talks about different kinds of joints, and gives examples of how we use joints everyday.
Storyteller Heather Forest uses song, pantomime, games, and discussion to introduce young students to the human body. Talks about key body parts and how they move; how the heart, lungs, and brain keep the body running; how the bones, joints, and muscles hold the body up and help it move; and how our senses help us enjoy the world. Introduces principles of healthy eating, daily exercise, and adequate rest.
Students learn and explore the major features of the skin, skeletal, and muscular systems. Special attention is given to the care and maintenance of skin, skeletal, and muscular systems. Concepts and terminology include: integumentary system, layers of skin, sweat glands, bone, osteocytes, periosteum, marrow, cartilage, ossification, types of joints, ligaments, types of muscle tissue, and voluntary and involuntary muscle.
As scientists delved deep into the atom, into the very heart of matter, they unraveled nature's most shocking secrets. They had to abandon everything they believed in and create a whole new science, which today underpins the whole of physics, chemistry, biology, and maybe even life itself. Tells a story of great geniuses, like Albert Einstein and Werner Heisenberg who were driven by their thirst for knowledge and glory. It's a story of false starts and conflicts, ambition, and revelation, a story which leads us through some of the most exciting and exhilarating ideas ever conceived of by the human race.
A shark attack survivor now knows what it feels like to be part bionic man. 23-year-old amputee Craig Hutto has volunteered to help test a state-of-the-art prosthetic leg with powered knee and ankle joints. With support from the National Science Foundation and continued support from the National Institutes of Health, Vanderbilt University mechanical engineer Michael Goldfarb has spent several years developing the leg, which operates with special sensors, an electric motor, a battery, and computer technology. Sensors monitor the user's motion and microprocessors figure out what the person is trying to do. Goldfarb says the powered leg reduces the lag time between a real leg and a prosthetic one. Hutto confirms that the powered prosthetic is much better at anticipating his next move.
