Title: Get in My Body: Drug Delivery
Url: https://www.teachengineering.org/lessons/view/uoh_body_lesson01
Publisher: University of Colorado Boulder
Description: TeachEngineering offers educators a rich library of standards-aligned teaching materials on a wide variety of STEM topics. The biomedical science lesson plan Get in My Body, contributed by the University of Houston, was created for upper-level high school students and may also be of interest to college instructors. In this lesson, which is estimated to take about 30 minutes, "students are challenged to think as biomedical engineers and brainstorm ways to administer medication to a patient who is unable to swallow." They learn about the available methods of delivering medications into the human body and about various considerations in pharmaceutical design, such as efficacy, size, toxicity, and solubility. Building on students' prior knowledge of human anatomy and chemistry, this lesson is designed to prepare them for Proof of Concept, a multi-session hands-on activity (linked in the sidebar) in which they design and test encapsulation prototypes for a hypothetical new medication. Both this lesson and its accompanying activity are printable and include detailed instructions, background information, and vocabulary lists. Downloadable teaching materials, including PowerPoint files, worksheets, and answer keys are also included.
