A Living Canvas

A living canvas; I did my steam project on tattooing and how they insert the ink to allow for these permanent images without our body being able to removing the ink. My project also covers healing of the wounds from the needles used to tattoo the skin.

Course objective: “Describe in depth each type of epithelial and connective tissue. Be able to describe their function and location.”

Epidermolysis Bullosa: A Connective Tissue Disorder

My STEAM project focuses on a rare connective tissue disorder called Epidermolysis bullosa (EB). Many people refer to this rare disease as “butterfly syndrome” due to the nature of the disorder, which makes the skin extremely fragile and delicate, like a butterfly’s wings. The objective covered in this project is …

Seizure Disorder

All of the neurons in our brain carry an electrical charge. The neurons in our brain use the action potentials to generate these electrical impulses. Neurons are used to transport information through different areas of the brain. Neurons’ specific purpose is communication. It is through the electrical charge and impulses …
