The Respiratory System

Aimed at primary teachers, this short film follows The Snot Doctors from Imperial College London, as they meet a class of primary children.

They take a look inside a model of a giant human nose and discuss how by looking at the nose they can tell a lot about what is happening inside the respiratory system.

They also discuss how using models in science can make learning about the body more real for children.

Children investigate different types of snot and how effective they are at preventing bugs entering the body.
