Fun Looking at the Heart and Blood Flow (with Leap Motion)

Mrs. Lachapelle’s science class looking at the heart using Leap Motion today. I love the conversation in the background.

“can I try it?” 

– “yep”


– “yep”

“like, like, right now?”

The answer to the last question was yes as well. Students figured out how to have it show blood flow (which was todays lesson) and looked at it pumping through the heart.

Playing with LeapMotion

We’ve been having some fun with LeapMotion today. It lets us use our hands in the air to work my computer. There are a few apps already designed for it. I’m sure the number of apps will only grow over time.

Today when investigating the 3D heart, one of my students (not the one in the video) came up and showed us what was wrong with his heart and taught us about his heart surgery. Was it planned curriculum for that day? No. Did every single one of us learn something? Absolutely. 🙂
