Microfluidics and Laminar Flow

In this lab, students will make a simple microfluidic device. They will use this device to investigate the behavior of fluids at this small scale and discover that fluids exhibit laminar flow instead of the more familiar turbulent flow. They will learn what factors causes this different flow behavior and how mcrofluidics in holds great promise for transforming medicine.
