  • The Immune System: Our Internal Defender

    Explore the complex immune system

    This program explores the complex and remarkable immune system and its vital role in the defense of our bodies.

    It introduces students to the microorganisms and minute foreign particles surrounding us at all times, including the infectious viruses and bacteria that threaten us when these foes break through the body's outer defenses. It explores the nature of immunity, graphically presents phagocytes, T-cells, and B-cells, the defending heroes of the immune system, and outlines the phases of immune response — from recognition of the invader to the eventual slowdown of the battle as the invader is defeated.

  • AIDS Facts for Kids

    This compelling program gives kids the facts they need to make healthy choices. Grades 5-8

    Here is a straightforward message for your students: "Protecting yourself from HIV and AIDS is your own responsibility." AIDS: Facts for Kids puts to rest unnecessary fears about HIV infection, then focuses on the real dangers of uninformed or irresponsible behavior.

    Beginning with the basics, students learn about HIV and how it disables the immune system, leaving the infected person vulnerable to an array of diseases. Students learn that we don't catch HIV from a sneeze, a water fountain, a telephone, a swimming pool, or other casual contact with an HIV-infected person. HIV is transmitted in two ways: by having sex with an infected person or by allowing infected blood to get mixed with our own.

    This program offers straightforward advice to students:

    -Don't have sex

    - Don't use illegal drugs

    -Guard against any activity - like piercing a friend's ears - that might result in the mixing of blood
