Product Details

Incorporate STEM into your biology curriculum with the Flinn STEM Design Challenge™ Digestion Connection! Students begin by discovering the inner workings of the stomach and its digestive capabilities. Then your students will love the challenge of designing a pill coating that can withstand the stomach’s harsh acidic environment, with a pH so low it can dissolve iron nails! By applying relevant concerns, such as medicine degradation, students engage in a fun activity that integrates biological and engineering skills.

Complete for 30 students working in pairs.
