Physiology Parameters Activity

Where: City East Campus
Duration: 60 minutes
Audience: Year 10, 11, 12 students

Students can participate in a session to brainstorm what Medical Science is and where it can lead to as a career. Students will use a Powerlab to measure the physiology parameters in real time (through pulse), they will collect and record other physiological parameters (through lung function, BMI and flexibility) and they will isolate cheek epithelia cells and subsequent staining to visualise different intracellular components.

How We Move: body responses to movement

Where: City East Campus
Duration: 45-60 minutes
Audience: Year 11 and 12 students

Students will be engaged in a workshop where they can explore how certain physiological measures (e.g., heart rate, electrocardiography & blood pressure) changes with different postures (e.g., sitting, standing) and during light exercise (e.g., walking, jumping jacks, other). Time will be spent having students hooked up to the equipment and engaging in the different activities.

How We Move: tracking and analysing human movement

Where: City East Campus
Duration: 60 minutes
Audience: Year 10, 11 and 12 students

Students will be introduced to complex 3D motion analysis. A student can have reflective markers placed on their lower limbs and be tracked while performing a task. Students can then use iPads to perform a biomechanical analysis of a jumping task.

How We Move: Brain to Muscle

Where: City East Campus
Duration: 60 minutes
Audience: Year 10, 11 and 12 students

Students will be presented with a short lecture on how the brain interacts with muscles to make them move. They will then  experience how transcranial stimulation (applied to a portion of their arm) flexes the wrist and performs brain stimulation on the workshop instructor.

The Science of Food and discover whether you are a super taster

Where: City East Campus
Duration: 60 minutes
Audience: Year 10, 11 and 12 students

Did you know that food is made up of chemicals, which can be manipulated to alter foods and produce new ones? In this session students will learn how to manipulate milk to make ricotta, and discover how and why people taste things differently – is it imagination or is it real?
