Welcome to the PF. :smile:

TBH, the video didn't work for me, but I'm a Medic and not a high schooler. So maybe it will serve the purpose in your class. Can you say a bit more about the class where you will use this, and how far below grade level the kids are? I imagine that attention span is an issue, hence the style of the presentation.

And just to be clear, the de-oxygenated blood only looks blue through the skin. When it comes out of the body (like I deal with), it is various shades of red, not blue. :wink:

Thank you! It is interesting that different people learn in different ways! I like the discussion you shared about the color of blood..

It's not quite as informative, but here' a fairly entertaining music video about the functions of bodily organs:

LMAO, thanks for posting that. Do you know the back story on the video? It looks so polished (and the singing!), that it almost can't be all just medical students producing that in their spare time. Maybe a collaboration between the Medical school and the Arts & Entertainment and Film schools? That is one polished video!

Also love the surgical moulage -- Hey, where did your spleen go...? LOL :smile:

This video was created for the 107th Annual Second Year Show by the Harvard Medical School and Harvard School of Dental Medicine class of 2016.

Apparently, they launched a competition to get other students to produce more music videos about other organs of the body: http://hmsorganchallenge.blogspot.com/

Sorry @stfaivus, that doesn't do anything for me either. It's lacking in story continuity and almost devoid of story. It takes real concentration to follow the lyrics. Looks more like a cartoonist needed a theme to show off artwork. :cry: :cry:

Hope you find something useful!

Cheers,
Tom
