Epidemic Simulation Classroom Kit

(in stock)


Beginning—Easy to perform; requires no experience in microbiology.
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.
