Heart of the Matter

Hands-on experience with valves and water flow supports young researchers' understanding of valve operation. Attached resources for learners are text-dense; I'd break up the text into smaller pieces for groups to read and present jigsaw-style, and add lots of visual supports. General learning about valves extrapolates to a study of medical advances in mechanical heart valves. Work culminates with your engineers conceiving and sketching improvements to current artificial heart valve design.
