Understanding Your Body’s Filtration System

Science answers plenty of questions about the world, but it’s truly a wonder when it answers questions about ourselves—particularly our bodies. This BioBox is an exploration of the kidneys, two essential organs that keep the body healthy and free of toxins. Through a kidney filtering experiment, your students will discover not only how their kidneys work, but also how doctors use this knowledge to treat patients every day.


With this BioBox, your students will be able to answer a few fundamental questions about the kidney:

  • What parts of the body work with the kidney?
  • What are the microscopic structures of the kidney?
  • How does the kidney filter blood?
  • How do doctors use urinalysis?

Let the Epic Experiments begin!
