About This Simulation

Help us release an injured chimpanzee back into the wild! In this simulation, you will be introduced to the anatomical position as well as body sections and planes using a chimpanzee as a model. Apply body planes to scan regions and subregions of the chimpanzee’s body to locate internal injuries. Next, use directional terminology to identify and patch up external wounds. Finally, boost the chimp’s energy level by using your new knowledge to win virtual fruit in a trivia game.

Assemble a chimpanzee model 

Piece together a chimpanzee model with regional and sub-regional puzzle pieces using human anatomy as reference. Take scans in the correct body planes to examine internal injuries in the sub-regions of the chimpanzee.

Pinpoint the location of injuries

Learn the definitions of directional terms to be able to explain the location of the chimpanzee’s superficial and internal injuries. Look at scans of different subregions to decide if the chimp needs further medical care. Then fix up the superficial wounds the chimp has suffered. 

It’s trivia time!

Test your knowledge while filling up a fruit basket for the chimpanzee. A set of trivia questions will assess your newly gained knowledge on the anatomical position, body planes and sections, regional and sub-regional terms as well as directional terminology. How many pieces of fruit can you collect for the chimp?
