Lungs and a stethoscope

Saturday, March 9, 2024

Crackles, gurgles, and rhonchi, oh my! These are the sounds your breathing makes when you have a respiratory infection. In this session, we will make model lungs to explore what really happens in our lungs and airways when we take a breath—and how things change when we get sick! 


Ages 7-11: 8 am PT • 9 am MT • 10 am CT • 11 am ET • 12 pm AT
Ages 11-16: 10 am PT • 11 am MT • 12 pm CT • 1 pm ET • 2 pm AT

Materials and Preparation
  • A clear water bottle with the bottom cut off (e.g., see photo below; please have this ready in advance)
  • Gelatin/jell-o (if you are making it yourself, please prepare it in advance of the session)
  • A spoon
  • A few balloons
  • Scissors
  • A plastic bag (e.g., plastic grocery bag or a large ziploc)
