This resource provides a cross-curricular design and technology project which links to work on the lungs and respiration. Children design and make a device to measure maximal exhalation volume. They also discover more about the work of biomedical engineers throughout the process. This resource was designed for use with learners at upper primary and secondary level; however the materials may also be suitable for use with older secondary children.
