Medical STEM Experiments and Design Challenges

Diagnostic Detectives is a freely accessible offering of medical STEM activities designed for students in grades 6–8 by The International Museum of Surgical Science in Chicago. The experiments and design challenges are presented in five chapters: (1) “Seeing Double: How Perception Works,” (2) “Creating a Cure-All: Make Your Own Medicine,” (3) “The Good and the Bad: Grow Your Own Bacteria,” (4) “Lending a Hand: Make Your Own Prosthesis,” and (5) “The Artificial Heart,” an engineering design challenge. All of the activities are aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards. Each activity includes a list of materials and instructions with pictures to guide students along the way. While a few activities require specific items, most of the materials can be substituted with other household items or craft supplies. Students are invited to “Get Social” and share their progress with the museum.
