The ease with which pathogens can spread through a population is very relevant today as we cope with the AIDS epidemic. Using diluted acids and bases as "body fluids," students engage in a classroom simulation of a spreading epidemic. They then figure out who the original "carrier" was. Students can complete the exercise in 1 class period. The Classroom Kit is designed for use by 4 separate classes of 30 each (120 students total). Complete teacher instructions included.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epidemic Simulation Kit Overall great kit with the exception of the class tray to hold all the results. This would only be better if it was designed for each student to be able to have a tray with his/her own results rather than a whole class tray. Also if the holes to deposit the specimens in were larger. Several of my 8th grade students missed the assigned area to put the fluids.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My classes enjoyed this simulation. My third, fourth, and fifth grade gifted classes completed this simulation. The children thoroughly enjoyed the experiment, especially tracing the the pathogen back to subject zero using the well plates. My students are fascinated by the science of epidemiology. This experiment was wonderful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Hands On Learning Experience This simulation activity is an excellent way to teach students about epidemiology and the spread of diseases. At the end of the activity students visually see how quickly a disease can spread within a population.
