Human physiology

In this activity the blood pressure is derived from measurements of the blood pressure sensor. In the analysis the oscillometric method is used.  

Activity Blood pressure (demo)

In this activity you will investigate the electrical activity of your heart using an ECG sensor. Also the effect of, for example exercising or a cup of coffee, can be examined.

Activity Monitoring EKG (demo)

In this activity students will study their breathing using a thermocouple sensor. They can compare their breathing with that of someone else. And examine the effect of exercise on their breathing pattern.

Activity Human respiration (demo)


Plant physiology

In this activity students investigate whether plants also respire. Most people know that animals respire but what about plants? By making use of germinating seeds, and a CO2 sensor, the respiration of plants seeds can be measured.

Activity Respiration of plant seeds (demo)

In this activity students examine the photosynthesis. Using an O2 sensor to measure the rate of photosynthesis at different light intensity. How much disadvantage has a plant in the shade anyway?

Activity Photosynthesis (light intensity) (demo)

In this activity students study life in a pond. From behind the computer they use an existing model to investigate the impact of plants, animals and light on the oxygen concentration in a pond. A fun activity in which respiration, photosynthesis and the influence of light are brought together.
