Unit 6.2: "The RAD Disease": Investigating and Modeling Body Systems

In this unit, students address the problem of emerging diseases and the use of tissue engineering to solve problems by learning of a fictitious outbreak within their school. As students progress through the unit, they identify the pathogen, construct explanations about how the pathogen affects organ systems and their subsystems, and design a tissue engineering strategy to repair the damage. 

Unit Challenge Question: How does a mystery pathogen make people sick and how can we come up with a treatment plan?
