In this hands-on exercise from the NOVA: "Electric Heart" Web site, you'll enter a virtual operating theater and perform a heart transplant. While this version of the operation has been greatly simplified, all of the basic steps are included. By the end of the operation, you will have a good idea of what's involved in taking the heart from one person and making it function in another.

Students measure and record their pulse rate before and
after physical activity to learn more about the heart.
Students have the opportunity to use a math model to look
for patterns in the pulse rate data. Students participate in
a Cardiac Relay to deepen their understanding of the
circulatory system. Students make observations of gravity’
effects on a water balloon to learn more about gravity’s
effects on water in the body. Thinking and acting like
scientists and engineers, students learn more about the
design of exercise equipment to keep astronauts healthy in
