Testing a Clot Buster
Test a new clot busting drug and engineer a clot removing tool.
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.

For several weeks we have done about 3 – 4 kits a week and my students have loved the pace and activity. To see their faces recognize change and surprise is priceless.
