The Heart of Discovery

Seventh graders didn’t miss a beat during this fun project!

Our students explored the human heart by building 3D models in TinkerCad. Each model had to include the four chambers, valves, and major arteries, all with labels.

“It was challenging to put in the four chambers and I really enjoyed doing it,” remembered Téa O. Her classmates agreed.

“I had a lot of fun doing it,” said Vaughn J. “We got to see all the different parts, what they do, and how the heart works.”

Students enjoyed the fruits of their labor in two ways. Some opted to print their 3D models in plastic. Others decided to present their creations by virtually “projecting” them via a phone app, making it appear to everyone who looked at the phone as if the heart was actually in the classroom.
