ABOUT THIS PRODUCT:


NGSS-aligned with MS-LS2.C

An infectious outbreak requires prompt & accurate identification of the biological agent. Often, early clinical symptoms are first identified in exposed individuals & then infectious agents are identified by lab tests. In this kit, students will transmit a simulated infectious agent (chemical dye) between classmates. The simulated infectious agent is only visible under long UV light. The pattern of transmission and primary source will be documented.

• Use your classroom to safely simulate how an infectious microorganism spreads throughout a population
• Glove up and then transmit the invisible germs by shaking hands (and sharing fluorescent or non-fluorescent powder)
• Visualize infections using a black light
• Use contact tracing methods to identify spreading points and primary sources
