Digestion Simulation

To reinforce students' understanding of the human digestion process, the functions of several stomach and small intestine fluids are analyzed, and the concept of simulation is introduced through a short, introductory demonstration of how these fluids work. Students learn what simulation means and how it relates to the engineering process, particularly in biomedical engineering. Students can practice their understanding by using the associated activity to model a digestive process. The teacher demo requires vinegar, baking soda, water and aspirin.
