Model The Effects Of Antibiotics On Disease Causing Bacteria During Infection
- Demonstrate The Importance Of Taking Antibiotics As Prescribed
- Re-Create The Interactions Of Antibiotics With Bacteria Populations
- Time Required: One To Two 50 Minute Class Periods
Demonstrate the importance of taking antibiotic prescriptions as prescribed with this simulation kit. Students re-create the interactions of antibiotics with bacteria populations, with some groups completing the entire course, while other groups miss doses. The populations of more and less-resistant bacteria are then graphed for comparison, and students observe the selection of more-resistant bacteria that can take place if antibiotic treatment is intermittent or discontinued.
