Skin Deep – Primary

Primary ProgramsOnsite

Skin Deep introduces students to the body’s largest organ and the role it plays in regulating body temperature.

Students gain a deeper understanding of the structure and function of skin by using optical and digital microscopes. They also investigate the effect that exercise has on body temperature using our physiological sensors and data loggers.

During the program students use their science inquiry skills of observation, questioning, predicting and inferring, and form their own conclusions about the role of skin in temperature regulation.
