How do our Kidney's work?
- Aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards
- Contains instruction manual
- Materials for only 2 groups of students or a single student
Learn the role of the kidney in blood filtration and waste removal along with the many tasks performed by the functional units of the kidney, called nephrons, as well as nephron structure. Students will create an artificial kidney model to filter a simulated blood solution, and will be able to visually determine if filtration of the simulated blood occurred. They will also perform chemical tests on the resulting filtrate to detect any possible waste material that may have been removed by the artificial kidney.
