For my STEAM project I wanted to more in depth into Achilles tendon injuries. I made a model of the tendon and its attaching muscle and bone. My visual was made from house hold items, reusing the skeletal model from our lab kits. For the first leg model I carefully stretched out the tendon before trying to flex and it didn’t tear when I full extended it and jerked it around a bit. For the other model I didnt stretch the tendon at all and in doing so I physically tear the achilleas tendon of model by flexing the foot upward. Showing the effects of not properly working your muscles/ tendons.
