Futures - Science - Heart Matters


Pupils discover that you are never too young to start taking care of your heart. They carry out scientific investigations in order to give young people information on the effect of a high fat diet on the circulatory system. They gain scientific understanding of the causes, effects, treatment and current research on heart disease and high blood pressure. They investigate the effect of fatty deposits in arteries and learn that these start building up in childhood. By using problem-solving skills, they diagnose which patients have had a heart attack.
