Human Anatomy for Youth

Have you ever wondered how you see, think, and hear? How you digest food, and how you move?

The objective for this organization is to teach the younger generation about the facets of Human Anatomy. The course will start with skeletal system, and then progress into various other systems like the digestive, respiratory, and pulmonary systems. The lessons will be given in interactive lectures, which will involve fun videos and exciting models, which can be used for hands on use.

Why teach kids about human anatomy?

The human body is a miraculous thing. It is like a well-oiled machine that responds to the stimuli around it. Therefore, it is only natural that kids learn about the body. In a way, they are learning about themselves to the deepest extent possible.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is Human Anatomy for Youth?

A: We are an initiative which aims to teach elementary school students about the basics of human anatomy! Anatomy is an important science, yet it is one that is sparsely taught at school. We aim to use interactive methods of teaching, such as models and puzzles, as well as fun videos to foster curiosity of the anatomical sciences in students.

Q: What grade levels do you cater to? How many students are in a class?

A: HAY caters to students from grades 3-5. In the past, we have also taught 6th graders. Class sizes can range. We have taught in small settings with 3-4 students. Conversely, we have taught up to 23 students in a class.

Q: What makes your teaching interesting?

A: We have all been through lectures which we feel never end. HAY does not seek to emulate that experience. Instead, we engage students by having them be more involved in their own learning process, whether that be through a hands-on model building activity, artistic endeavours, or having class discussions. We find that this helps students remember more, and makes the learning process much more fun!

Q: What is covered in the HAY curriculum?

A: We cover the skeletal, muscular, cardiovascular, respiratory, and digestive systems. We also have units on pathogens and vaccines, and a basic introduction to what cells are.

Q: Where does HAY teach?

A: We have 1 branch in Baltimore, MD, another branch in San Jose, CA, and are in the process of developing a branch in St. Louis, MO! We are always looking for more schools to help out in, so please reach out if you are interested in the program!
