Bundle includes three complete kits outlined below:
Tracking the Spread of Infectious Diseases Kit. 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 in.trackable in. spreading event scenarios such as an invasive species or an outbreak of food poisoning. Also introduces the concept of exponential growth. Contents: 24 plastic cups (each 100 ml), 15 ml drop control bottle of 2% sodium carbonate solution, 30 ml drop control bottle of in.Infection Test Solution, in. transparency (Class Infection History), 28 student worksheets and guides, teacher’s guide, and Material Safety Data Sheet (SDS) packet.
Bacteria Study Kit. Students conduct the classic Leeuwenhoek bacteria experiment in this individualized, self-paced kit. Paralleling methods performed over 300 years ago, they observe and identify bacteria using a microscope (not included). Contents: 60 plastic transfer pics, 30 microscope slides, six transparent infusion containers, two droppers, two Gram’s iodine solution (vial), two crystal violet stain (drop control bottle), two methylene blue stain (drop control bottle), two safranin stain (drop control bottle), beans, hay, peppercorns, 30 student worksheets and guides, and teacher’s guide with SDS.
Natural Selection and Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria Kit (Developed by SEPUP). 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. Contents: 320 blue disks, 240 yellow disks, 240 red disks, 16 number cubes, 32 bacteria graphs, two transparencies (Bacteria Graph Sample 1 and Bacteria Graph Sample 2), 32 student worksheets and guides, and teacher’s guide with SDS.WARNING: Choking Hazard. Small Parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.
