Northland youngsters will soon be able to see what happens to the human brain during puberty and how drugs, alcohol, peer pressure and relationships affect how it works.
The revealing insights will be on a new digital brain website which the Life Education Trust will roll out next year.
Trust official Jess Limbrick said the trust had traditionally focused on educating primary and intermediate-aged children and the website would extend its reach to teenagers.
"It's a digital version of 'The Great Brain Robbery', a book by Life Education Trust founder Trevor Grice," she said.
Mr Grice believes the pressures of modern life, the increase in youth suicide and easy access to drugs and alcohol make it essential for young people to understand what's going on inside their heads.
"We want to show them how hormones affect the whole body. A teenage brain is all accelerator and no brake. The key to them taking responsibility is understanding what's happening to them," he said.
Prime Minister John Key has been shown how the website can replicate his skeleton and organs and demonstrate how they work.
The digital brain will be validated by Auckland Medical School's Centre for Brain Research and introduced into schools next year.
The chair of the trust's Whangarei branch, Fiona Goodin, said everyone was excited about the prospect of having the new technology in the classroom.
