IS3006 Kidneys and Blood Filtration
Learn the role of the kidney in blood filtration and waste removal along with the many functional tasks performed by nephrons, as well as nephron structure. Students will create an artificial kidney model to filter simulated blood. This will allow them to visually determine if filtration of the simulated blood may or may not have occurred. Chemically test the resulting filtrate to detect any possible waste material that may have been removed by the kidney. Kit contains enough materials for 15 groups. Teacher’s Manual and Student Study Guide copymasters are included.
