"Reproductive and endocrine systems" explores two systems that have unique roles in the function of the human body. Kids will learn about the amazing way that the primary organs of the endocrine system communicate and produce the hormones which regulate the critical functions of other body systems. Topics including growth, the onset of puberty and sexual maturiy are also covered. The program includes a presentation of the reproductive organs, along with an explanation of the production of sex cell--eggs and sperm--and the process of fertilization. There's also a visit with a reproductive endocrinologist and a hands-on activity in which kids get to see the effect of hormones on plant growth"--Container.
