STEM Prep Project
Health Track Content
The STEM Prep Health materials are orgnized in eight stations.
Stations are labeled to match the four types of energy systems (movers) operating in the human body and in all industrial systems: Mechanical, Fluid, Thermal and Electrical.
There are two stations under each system. Each station is made up of three modules: Lab, Communications (Reading, Writing, and Computer), and Math.
After enrollment, orientation, testing, and placement, students select a station as a starting point, going through all modules in that station and then proceeding to the next, until all stations are complete.
The lab unit in each station provides instructions for students to complete hands-on activities related to the type of system covered in each station.
Following are links to the instructions and presentations related to each station in the Health Track.
Fluid Station 1.1: Blood Pressure
Fluid Station 1.2: I.V. Therapy
Mechanical Station 2.1: Range of Motion
Mechanical Station 2.2: Levers and Muscle Contractions
Thermal Station 3.1: How the Body Regulates its Temperature
Thermal Station 3.2: How the Body Regulates its Temperature Sensation
Electrical Station 4.1: Action Potentials and Muscle Contraction
Electrical Station 4.2: The Heart and Cardiac Arrest
All stations andother project information are posted on Moodle for student access at http://fourcornerslearning.org/moodle/. A password is required for entry into the classroom-managment site.
