VWHS CTE Health Science Class Complete "Gatro World" Projects

The challenge was to design and build a digestive system-themed amusement park. Students were required to incorporate attractions which addressed each organ of the digestive system with anatomical accuracy while utilizing each organ's physiology in the operation of each attraction. They were also given different digestive system diseases/conditions which also had to be incorporated into the appropriate attractions depending upon which organ(s) are affected by the diseases/conditions.
Along with building scale-models, each student group had to create a portfolio which gives a detailed overview of their park, a detailed description of each attraction using the correct medical terms, and an explanation of how their park can be used to educate the public over the digestive system and digestive system health.
