In ‘Body in Question’, Students have continued to inquire into how the body works using both biological and biomechanical lenses. They have undertaken a range of learning including building realistic scale models of bones and muscles using sculpting clay as well as completing many body-based experiments to explore Newton’s Laws of motion.

A particular highlight has been an excursion to laboratories at Flinders University Tonsley campus where students have learn about surgical tools and imaging, orthopaedic implants, The Hexapod, a robot that can replicate human movement with high accuracy, motion capture and gait analysis and physiological systems. Many thanks to our colleagues at Flinders University for providing such engaging, enthralling learning opportunities for our students.
