Infectious Disease Detectives

Students participate in a simulation of how diseases are transmitted. Each student holds a test tube, with only one containing the "disease" while the others have water. They move around the room until told to stop. Using droppers to place some of their solution into their neighbor's tube, they are spreading the disease. Finally, they try to determine the original source of the infection.
