Simulating Sutures

Simulating Sutures

In this activity students will gain an understanding of different suture materials and stitches by designing a suture model using yarn, plastic lacing, and pipe cleaners. Using critical thinking and modeling medical stitch techniques, students will create a take-away key chain suture model. This activity will highlight Johnson & Johnson’s variety of suture materials.

Simulating Sutures is part of the STEM2D Student Activity Series. The content and layout were developed by the Smithsonian Science Education Center as part of Johnson & Johnson’s WiSTEM²D initiative (Women in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, Manufacturing, and Design), using a template provided by FHI 360 and JA Worldwide. This series includes a suite of interactive and fun, hands-on activities for girls (and boys), ages 5–18, globally.
