What does a DIY model lung look like? THIS! 👍
Last week we learnt all about the respiratory system and made a model lung complete with trachea, bronchi and Inflatable lungs!
We also measured our lung capacity and compared them.
Can’t wait for today’s class on the digestive system!
Using mealworms to study animal behaviors...stimulus and response. Mealworms response to light, they prefer darkness. We also conducted a study to see which food they prefer: apples 🍎 🍏 , oatmeal, potatoes 🥔, or bran cereal. #mealworms#scienceiscool
When it comes to fieldwork, every botanist needs a good loupe magnifier at hand. Here, a researcher with the IINH is examining the physical structures of a moss sample found in Skaftafell National Park. This loupe is great way to differentiate species in the field. Smaller organisms can be much more difficult to key because structures can vary season to season or by gender. In these cases, small samples are brought back to a lab, where genomic tests can identify cryptic and new species. Simple chemical tests can also distinguish between two similar organisms, where a characteristic reaction in the lab can uncover the species found in the field.

Another ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ review from one of our Egghead birthday parties! Glad we could make another future Egghead fall in love with science! 👩🔬

This is what you get when you tell a bunch of scientists to be silly 🤪 because what good is learning without a little bit of fun! #professoregghead
