Educator Resources for Antibiotic Resistance Game

The Antibiotic Resistance game supports understanding that bacteria are always multiplying--which can lead to the introduction of small changes. The game also demonstrates that antibiotics are like poison for bacteria, with each dose killing only the bacteria not strong enough to survive. Stronger bacteria survive and multiply, creating new bacteria that are a little stronger (or a little different) than those already present. The game emphasizes the importance of completing full antibiotic courses of treatment along with the consequence of overusing antibiotics, which effectively creates stronger bacteria.
