Antibiotic Attack

In this online simulation, learners use antibiotics to cure patients with bacterial infections. When learners use an antibiotic to treat the infection, sometimes the bacteria mutates so stronger antibiotics are needed. Learners are dissuaded from using the strongest antibiotic since it causes the greatest side effects. When learners set up a free account at Kinetic City, they can answer bonus questions at the end of the activity as a quick assessment. As a larger assessment, learners can complete the Smart Attack game after they've completed several activities.
