Students in the Health Occupations Technology program at the Clearfield County Career & Technology Center (CCCTC) are learning about the endocrine system. They are learning how the function and structures of the thyroid gland, adrenal gland, thymus, pancreas, ovaries, pineal gland, hypothalamus, pituitary gland, and testes, produce and secrete hormones, which regulates the activity of cells or organs. Students in the Health Occupations program explain that this helps regulate the body’s growth, metabolism, sexual development and function.
