Mrs. Shiver's PLTW Biomedical Sciences Medical Interventions students performed a simulation to quantify bacterial meningitis antigens in the cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) of fictitious patients. They learned to use the micropipet, create serial dilutions, and make comparisons to a reference sample. They discovered that patient "Sue" had the highest antigen concentration and therefore was most likely the individual who spead the pathogen to her roommate, friend, and lab partner. It was a good lesson for the seniors who will be attending college in less thana year. After these simulations, students claime that they are swearing off drinking out of the same containers as each other!
