About This Simulation

The immune system is a complex structure of cells, tissues and organs that work together to protect our bodies from infection. Dive into the complex structures and functions of those organs and cells that protect us from various pathogens every day!

Learning Objectives

  • Identify the major organs of the immune system
  • Classify immune cell types by their role in responses
  • Explain the importance of lymphocyte clonal selection & deletion processes

Learn More About This Simulation

This short, targeted simulation is adapted from the full-length Introduction to Immunology simulation. 

Have you ever wondered how your organism manages to fight millions of pathogens that are trying to infect you daily? Which organs and cells are involved in that never ending battle? During this simulation, you’ll discover this complicated network of organs and cells that create an immunological system and protect you every day. Are you ready to meet your superheroes?

Explore the major organs of the immune system

Various organs in your body are responsible for production, maturation, and control of immune cells. Even though they are not present at the site of infection, without them the immune cells wouldn’t work properly and efficiently. Sometimes non obvious organs, like the heart, can be vital for proper function of the system. Will you be able to identify all those organs and guess their function in the immunological reaction?

Classify immune cell types and their role in the system

The immune system is a complex army of cells and tissues that work together to protect your body from infection. In the next mission you’ll meet all major cells that are fighting with pathogens and protect you every day. You’ll also meet the key cells involved in immune memory and learn how the adaptive immune system helps us fight recurring infections.

“They did the simulation at home, then completed the in-person lab within 30 minutes, no questions asked, and passed the quiz with flying colors.”

Lewis Mattin
PhD
Lecturer in Human Physiology
University of Westminster

"I saw some of the students who clearly didn’t necessarily like sitting there reading a book discover they could turn on Labster and keep up with the rest of the class because it spoke to them.

Melody McGill
Curriculum Coordinator
Modesto City Schools

"Having something that's engaging for the students gives teachers that opportunity to breathe and get excited again. Because they're seeing the kids light up, they're seeing the kids engage with content."

"The question always is, ‘Can we demonstrate that the students are meeting course outcomes?’ Check! We can do that.”

Dr. Melody Esfandiari
Chemistry Lecturer
San José State University

"We surveyed over 400 students. More than 90% thought Labster was easy to navigate, and that it was fun, but more importantly, most of them felt confident that they could execute the labs in person. And that confidence is a big deal."

“The Labster simulations get students to do things, and they're not just sitting there consuming a webinar where their mind can drift. They become an active participant in that learning experience.”
