Artificial Biceps in 7th Grade Science

Some fabulous work is being done in Ms. Fellows 7th grade science class. Student are working on a unit about human body systems and were assigned a lab specifically on the skeletal and muscular system. Students were learning about flexor and extensor muscles. They read an article about a robot called a human skeleton that is used in companies to help humans to prevent muscle fatigue. They had to design their own contraption to help the bicep muscle heal if it had a sports injury (hence artificial bicep).

Here are some examples of what students submitted.
