Description:

This PBS site contains hands-on activities that model obstructed blood vessels. Materials are simple--straws, clay, and water--and the experiments are easy to do. You'll model how blood pressure changes when a blood vessel is obstructed and also how elevated blood pressure can damage a weakened artery. This site contains links to related PBS videos.
