How to use ‘Green Screen’ / ‘Chroma Key’ tech to look inside the human body!

Green Screen & biology

Our new class topic is called ‘iDoctor’ – in a nutshell: human biology with a STEAM focus.  I decided to ask the children to use ‘Green Screen’ / ‘Chroma Key’ technology to look inside the human body!


How do you do it?

Finally, ask the pupils to take a screenshot, and then use the app ‘PicCollage‘ to label the muscles/bones/organs/body parts.
