Catalog #STO-156

Test a new clot busting drug and engineer a clot removing tool.

Time To Complete Time to complete: Three or four 40 minute class periods

Blood clots that block blood vessels to parts of the brain may cause serious brain damage.  Clot-X is a simulated clot busting drug that dissolves blood clots.

  • Analyze patients’ stories to learn about strokes and the use of “clot buster” drugs.
  • Conduct simulated laboratory experiments to determine the concentration of Clot-X that is effective for treating strokes.
  • Analyze data from research on the safety and effectiveness of Clot-X by creating a data table and a bar graph.
  • Use models to engineer (design and evaluate) mechanical tools for restoring blood flow to blood vessels blocked by clots.
