Simulated Urinalysis Investigation

Kit #4

In this activity students assume the role of a medical technician responsible for running lab tests and writing up reports. They test simulated urine from five different “patients” for specific gravity, pH, phosphates, chlorides, and glucose levels. They then analyze the test results and provide feedback about each “patient’s” health.
