Biology: Homeostasis, new and improved
After 2 weeks of brainstorming, trying out mini-experiments, and working out the logistical details of how to simultaneously measure a whole bunch of different things within a short period of time, we finally carried out our new and improved homeostasis experiment. Each kid ran for 6 minutes, while the rest of the crew made observations of body temperature, skin color, perspiration level, heart rate, and breathing rate. We'll analyze our results next week.
