Microfluidic Devices and Flow Rate

When you have to flow, you have to flow. The instructional activity introduces class members to microfluidic devices and their uses in medicine. They watch a short video on how the diameter affects the rate of flow. The worksheet has individuals calculate flow rates using different scenarios in the third part of the four-part series.
