kit #AG-S08

This bundle provides a savings of $41.00 and contains the following kits:

Tracking the Spread of Infectious Diseases (#906)
Contagious diseases can spread very quickly through a population. If an infected individual mingles with healthy individuals, random contact can cause many more to become infected. This activity simulates the transmission of a contagious disease and the steps epidemiologists take to try to determine its source and limit its spread. Two scenarios are provided, one for an infection spreading among humans and another among livestock. If desired, the kit materials can also be used to simulate different “trackable” spreading event scenarios such as an invasive species or an outbreak of food poisoning. This activity also introduces the concept of exponential growth.

Natural Selection and Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria, Developed by SEPUP (#904S)
Why is it important to take an antibiotic as prescribed? Students model the effects of antibiotics on the population of disease-causing bacteria during an infection. During the simulation, some groups complete the full course of antibiotics, while others miss doses. They then graph populations of more-resistant and less-resistant bacteria. Students observe the selection of more-resistant bacteria that can take place if antibiotic treatment is intermittent or discontinued prematurely. Through this activity, students learn why it’s important to take “the full course” of antibiotics.

Bacteria Study (#160)
Students conduct the classic Leeuwenhoek bacteria experiment in this individualized, self paced kit. Paralleling methods performed over 300 years ago, students observe and identify bacteria using a microscope. Requires microscopes.
